How much can the Solid Waste Authority charge for the supplemental waste, and how much will you make?
The marketplace for the disposal of this waste is competitive, so what we charge will depend on:
The specific type of waste
The haul distance and cost of delivering the material to us
What other places are charging
Solid Waste Authority revenue will depend on the tipping fee we can charge and how much money we can make selling the energy generated and the metals recovered from using supplemental waste. We estimate that there could be an economic boost to the county of up to $45 million until the need to use supplemental waste is no longer needed, which is estimated to be 2022.
