Budgets & Finance for Solid Waste


  • The Environmental Support Division manages all administrative tasks, education and outreach, enforcement, equipment maintenance, planning, and related divisional support activities to the other three divisions.
  • The Landfill Division manages the construction and demolition waste landfill and some environmental monitoring functions related to the operating and closed landfills.
  • The Sanitation Division is responsible for all five County Convenience Centers and waste collection from County schools and County government buildings, along with other miscellaneous waste collection activities as needed by the County.

Solid Waste Program Fee

The newly implemented Solid Waste Program Fee provides 57% of Departmental capital and operating revenues with the Solid Waste Reserves (11%) and the County’s General Fund (15%) providing another 26%. A combination of construction landfill tipping fees, solid waste permitting fees, recycling and mulch sales, state grants, interest income and other diverse smaller sources provide the remainder. A mix of stable, long-term predictable funding sources enables effective program planning and implementation, as well as, continuing current operations and long-term environmental protection through proper landfill maintenance and monitoring.
