In May 2022 the County re-assigned the Solid Waste Franchise Agreement revenue and responsibilities to the District. With the assignment of the Franchise Agreement to the District comes the responsibilities to administer the provisions of the agreement with Mission Country Disposal, the franchisee, and all regulatory compliance obligations imposed by the State.
The County’s rate setting process has been completed. The initial rate increase is 41.87%, but there was a delay while the County, their consultant, and Mission Country Disposal worked to come to agreement on the completed rate application. Because of the amount of time it took; Mission Country was entitled to recoup the revenue lost going back to July 1, 2022 when the rates should have gone into effect. This adds about another 49% increase to the rate starting April 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023. Rates will be reduced starting January 1, 2024.
