Solid Waste District announces public comment period on its plan update

The Medina County Solid Waste Management District is accepting public comment on its draft Plan Update. This update includes a budget and fees to finance the plan, projections and strategies, facilities and programs, an analysis of progress made towards achieving state solid waste reduction goals, and other aspects.

There will be a 30 day written comment period, March 2-31, 2015, followed by a public hearing for oral comments on Thursday, April 9, 2015, from 7-9 pm at the Buffalo Creek Retreat in Seville.

The draft Plan Update is available for review here. Read the Solid Waste District's full announcement of the public comment period, including details of how to participate, here.

Temporary refuse rate reduction

The standard refuse rate for the City of Brunswick households will be temporarily reduced from $58.35 to $50.67 for this quarter (April 1, 2015 thru June 30, 2015). This reduction is directly related to the tipping fee decreases approved by the Medina County Commissioners and the City’s contractual obligation with the trash hauler. This reduction is expected to be temporary but the City felt it was important to pass along those cost savings to the customers. Once the CPF and related tipping fee discussions are resolved by the Medina County Commissioners, the City’s refuse bill will then be amended accordingly.
