Amendment Providing that Only County Owned Solid Waste Landfills Shall be Used

for Disposal of Solid Waste

• Would significantly increase solid waste collection and disposal costs for
residents of Orange Beach due to higher fuel costs and possible greater tipping
fees (currently, the City utilizes a private contractor). Multiple landfill
opportunities result in competitive tipping and collection fee rates.

• The proposed legislation does not allow for creation of a solid waste
management authority providing municipality representation on matters such as
fee establishment, profit expenditure, program implementation and quality
assurance. At a minimum, the cities within Baldwin County need to have some
authority over this program if we are required to utilize the County landfill for
our solid waste disposal.
