Metro is proposing revisions to the administrative rules that define the process for allocating regional wet waste tonnage to private transfer stations that meet Regional Waste Plan goals.
In 2022, Metro implemented the third and final phase of a program 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 marginalized communities in the region’s garbage and recycling system.
Proposed changes to select administrative rules are designed to simplify, clarify, and more closely align the rule language with the intent of the previous administrative rules and with the goals of the regional waste plan. The nature and purpose of changes are described rule by rule in the proposed revisions below.
