    About

    The Refuse Rates Administrator is responsible for proposing new rates for consideration by the Refuse Rate Board. These documents were reviewed by the Refuse Rates Administrator to support recommendations for programmatic, non-programmatic, and administrative provisions for Rate Year 2024 beginning October 1, 2023 and Rate Year 2025 beginning October 1, 2024. The rate-setting process is governed by Proposition F (June 2022) and Proposition 218. The process began January 31, 2023 when the Refuse Rate Administrator issued its Rate Change Request Forms.

    The Refuse Rate Administrator has worked to ensure that the rate process has been transparent, that all information would be publicly available, and that rate-related deliberations would be on public record. As part of this process, a publicly transparent interrogatory process was undertaken with frequent rounds of review and questioning. Requests, questions, and responses were posted weekly on the Refuse Rate Administrator’s website. Further, the website included information on refuse rates, the rate-setting process, along with the City’s NextRequest Public Information Request systems for matters pertaining to Refuse Rates.

    In developing the proposed Refuse Rate Order, the Refuse Rates Administrator has presented at nine public hearings including the Commission on Environment, and the Streets and Sanitation Commission, and has provided opportunity for written public comment both by mail and electronically.
