Fees are based on the overall volume of garbage, with different rates applicable for compacted versus un-compacted garbage.

The Waste Management Report Card is a new tool to help multi-residential buildings with City serviced front-end collection understand their performance regarding waste generation and diversion.

Property owners of multi-residential buildings pay a solid waste fee based on the volume of garbage the building generates and the number of units in the building. Different rates are applicable for compacted versus un-compacted garbage. Buildings that reduce their overall garbage volume and divert more waste through Blue Bin recycling, Green Bin organics and other waste reduction programs can potentially reduce their solid waste fees.

Reading the Waste Management Report Card

Garbage, Recycling and Organic Volumes: The amount of garbage, recycling and organics a building generates over the time period reported on. Buildings that reduce their overall garbage volume and divert more waste can potentially lower their solid waste fees.

Solid Waste Fee by Billing Period: The base garbage fees are charges that equate to a base allowance of garbage generation per unit. If the building exceeds the base allowance, the building will be charged an excess fee per cubic yard. The excess fees represent the potential savings that could be achieved by reducing the overall amount garbage and diverting waste through improved participation in waste diversion programs.

3-Star Rating Criteria: The 3-star rating is based on a building’s average garbage volume per month per unit.

3 stars: Buildings that generate 2 or less regular garbage bags per unit per month.

2 stars: Buildings that generate about 2-5 regular garbage bags per unit per month.

1 star: Buildings that generate more than 5 regular garbage bags per unit per month.
