[greenyes] Disposal Surcharge
GRRN Colleagues,

Apologies for cross postings.

I've been asked to ferret out any information on government agencies that have successfully levied a garbage disposal surcharge on MSW disposed from within the government's geographic boundaries.  This would include all MSW collected within the geographic confines of the government and disposed of anywhere, including public, private, out of jurisdiction, out of county/parrish,  or out of state landfills.  Any information would be helpful, especially if it contains justification for the surcharge,  the legal hoops that had to be jumped through to implement it (e.g. how authority was granted to levy such a surcharge at the local level), reactions to it from the private sector, how it is billed and how it is collected.

As always, thanks in advance for any assitance.
