Metro is proposing administrative rules to allocate a portion of regional waste tonnage to private transfer stations that meet regional waste plan goals. These aims include providing living wages, increasing diversity in the workforce and reducing environmental impacts at private transfer stations in the region. These goals reflect the regional waste plan focus on equity, centering the voices, values, and needs of historically marginalized communities in the region’s garbage and recycling system.
