News Release
Public Hearing for Solid Waste Collection Rates in Marion County - 11/22/22

SALEM, OR - The Marion County Board of Commissioners will be holding a public hearing on November 30th at 9:30 a.m. in the Commissioners Board Room at Marion County Courthouse Square, located at 555 Court Street NE in Salem, Oregon.  This public hearing will be regarding solid waste collection rate changes within Marion County.

Based upon the annual Cost of Service Analysis (COSA) performed by the franchised garbage and recycling haulers, they have determined that there is a need to make adjustments in the collection rates for urban and rural customers. The adjustments proposed, for roll cart services in urban and rural, are 2.8% and 1.1% respectively. There are also proposed rural containers adjustments for the 1-, 1.5-, and 2-yard container rates. Proposed drop box service fees impact service rates, mileage zones, rental, and delivery fees.  For medical waste customers, the haulers are requesting a new rate structure that would eliminate the additional box rate to help simplify the billing process for customers. They have requested that these rate adjustments be effective January 1, 2023.

This public hearing was set, as required by Marion County's Solid Waste Management Ordinance (MC Code Section 8.05), in order to consider the proposed changes to the solid waste collection rates charged by the franchised haulers.

If you have any questions or would like to request additional information regarding this public notice, please contact Brian May at 503-365-3147 or environmentalservices@co.marion.or.us
