The Laguna Hills City Council determined, pursuant to California Public Resources Code Section 400059(a)(2), that the public health, safety, and well-being of the residents and businesses of Laguna Hills, and the need to implement and effectively operate recycling programs per the California Integrated Waste Management Act of 1989, requires that an exclusive contract be awarded for provisions of these services. On September, 28, 2005, City Council awarded a 10-year exclusive franchise to CR&R for Solid Waste and Recycling Services for the City's residential and business communities with collection service beginning on July 1, 2006.
Notice Concerning Proposed Solid Waste and Recycling Rate Adjustments and Public Hearing
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at 7:00 p.m., a public hearing will be held at the City of Laguna Hills City Council Chambers located at 24035 El Toro Rd., Laguna Hills, CA 92653 to consider proposed adjustments to the City’s solid waste rates and charges. If approved by the City Council, the proposed rate adjustments will go into effect on July 1, 2022, and will be subject to annual adjustments for inflation.
All cities in the State, including Laguna Hills, face the most stringent solid waste legislation in California history under State Senate Bill 1383 (SB 1383). For City residents and businesses to remain in compliance with this State Law, new organic waste services are necessary, none of which are funded by the State. Therefore, these services must be funded through the solid waste rates charged by the City’s franchised waste hauler.
