CHAPTER 32.1 SOLID WASTE

 

. . . .

 

Sec 32.1-41. Solid Waste Rate Determination

(a) All property owners or occupants who meet the criteria in paragraph (b) of this section are required to pay a residential solid waste user and recycling fee.

(1) The base fee of $11.63 per week shall be charged to residential property owners and occupants who do not participate in the citys recycling program.

(2) The reduced fee of $5.88 per week shall be charged to residential property owners and occupants who participate in the citys recycling program. Participation in the residential recycling program requires customers to recycle by placement of the approved recycling container curbside on the approved collection day at least one collection cycle in any 30-day period and be at least 25 percent full.

(b) Solid waste user and recycling fees will be imposed upon property owners and occupants at every service address that meet all of the following criteria:

(1) a habitable dwelling unit;

(2) an active water account; and

(3) active water consumption, which is defined as metered water service that uses at least 20 cubic feet of water consumption during a single water billing cycle.

(c) The residential solid waste user and recycling fee shall be billed regardless of whether property owners and occupants actually use the service, or regardless of whether the service is provided if prevented due to an emergency, because the service is provided and supported by the equitable contribution of all customers who meet the criteria set forth herein.

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia held on August 12, 2015.
