The Pima County Department of Environmental Quality (PDEQ) is proposing revisions to Pima County Code (PCC) Title 13 (Solid Waste) and the County's fee schedule relating to Pima County’s landfills and transfer stations.
According to a recent news release from Pima County, the public is invited to attend a meeting on June 25 at 6 p.m. in the Bud Walker Community Center (290 5th St. in Ajo, AZ) or a public hearing on August 6, at or after, 9 a.m. in the Board of Supervisors’ Hearing Room, (130 W. Congress St., 1st floor, Tucson).
The news release stated:
“The proposed ordinance amendments to PCC Title 13 amend sections related to the definitions, waste acceptance, and fees at solid waste facilities, as well as repeal sections no longer needed. The proposed fee schedule ordinance presents changes to solid waste facilities fees, including changes to commercial and residential fees, increasing fees over a period of five (5) years.”
On May 14, the Pima County Board of Supervisors approved a contract for Tucson Waste and Recycling Services to take over operations of the Pima County landfills and transfer stations. The proposed code and fee schedule revisions are related to the change in operations.
