Council study session set on organic waste recycling
The City Council will hold a study session on Tuesday on an organic waste recycling plan, mandated by State Assembly Bill 1826. The bill requires all businesses that generate organic waste to comply.
Organic waste includes food waste, food-soiled paper waste, green waste and non-hazardous wood waste. AB1826 provides a phased implementation schedule based on how much organic waste a business generates.
During the study session, which is set for 4:30 p.m. in the City Council chambers, the council will hear two rate options for collecting organic waste proposed by its contracted trash collection company, Rainbow Environmental Services.
The City Council is expected to vote on the plan at its March 7 meeting.
During the 6 p.m. regularly scheduled council meeting, council members will also hear a presentation on plans to celebrate the city’s 60th anniversary.
Fountain Valley was incorporated on June 13, 1957. The City Council will hear some city staff options for celebrating the 60th anniversary. Among the options are a fireworks show and a parade, both proposed to be held during the city’s annual Summerfest celebration June 22-25.
The regular council meeting starts at 6 p.m. in the council chambers, 10200 Slater Ave. To see the complete agenda, go to www.fountainvalley.org.
