Residential and Multifamily Property Owners Stakeholder Meeting for Proposed Household Hazardous Waste Program Improvements and Fee

October 8, 2013

October 8th,  7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Livermore Civic Center Library, Community Room A and B
1188 S. Livermore Avenue, Livermore

Join us to hear more about the countywide residential household hazardous waste program and its future. The program provides environmentally sound disposal options for residential household hazardous waste such as paint, solvents, and pesticides. Improper disposal often pollutes our waterways, detracts from property values, or forces the community or others to pay for cleanup.

The countywide household hazardous waste collection program is currently paid for through a per ton fee on municipal solid waste disposed in landfills. However, the fee has not changed since 2000 and the program either needs to be cut back dramatically or provided with additional funding. These stakeholder meetings seek to gather feedback from single family and multi-family property owners regarding a proposed fee of less than $10 per year per dwelling unit to be paid with property tax bills each year.
