Demands from the public to keep local government "lean and mean" has oftentimes meant that solid waste agencies have not raised solid waste collection or disposal rates, even when their costs for critical items such as fuel, maintenance, insurance, and worker health benefits have increased dramatically. By learning how to properly account for the cost of services, solid waste managers can confidently and precisely explain their financial needs to public officials and the community. This webinar will provide a look at the tools that can allow managers to set rates based upon solid, data-driven knowledge.

Getting a handle on the costs for your agency to provide solid waste services should be a key focus for any professional solid waste manager. Join this webinar to learn how to do just that from a seasoned professional and the co-author of the Solid Waste Rate Setting and Financing Guide, published by the American Public Works Association.
