SOLID WASTE COLLECTIONS AND DISPOSAL SERVICES - Proposition 218 Fact Sheet

The City of El Segundo provides solid waste collections and disposal for single-family and two-unit properties, in accordance with the Municipal Code. Currently, the City pays for these services from the General Fund, which provides funding for the Police and Fire Departments, Library Services, as well as maintenance of and improvements to the City’s infrastructure. Of California’s approximately 480 towns and cities, El Segundo is one of only three in the State where residents do not directly pay for solid waste collection services. In addition, State regulations such as AB939 (mandated landfill diversion, 1990), AB341 (business/multi-family recycling, 2012) and SB1383 (organic waste reduction, 2016) have increased the costs of providing these services on municipalities, and failure to comply can subject the City to fines of up to $10,000 per day.

Recognizing these facts and that the average monthly cost for waste collections of other cities within Los Angeles County is $28.06, the El Segundo City Council has proposed implementing a residential waste collection fee as early as February 1, 2019. The City is also procuring a new, regulatory-compliant municipal solid waste collection contract. The fee will be for the cost of the services and not exceed $20 per month per eligible dwelling in the City (single-family and two-unit properties), except for inflation adjustments in future years, if needed.

Public Works Project – Main Street Bollards Project
News Image

The project consists of installing removable bollards, from curb-to-curb, on Main Street near Holly Avenue and just north of Fire Station #1. The work to be performed will consist of trenching, concrete pouring, and asphalt pavement restoration. During construction, traffic on Main Street between Holly Avenue and Grand Avenue will be restricted but remain open in both the north and south directions. If necessary, traffic might be restricted overnight (no construction) but remain open in both the north and south directions. It will take approximately 6 weeks for the Contractor to complete the project, weather permitting. On Thursdays, the Farmers Market will not be impacted and remain open during construction.

A second letter will be hand delivered by the Contractor closer to the actual construction time to those immediately adjacent to the project site. This second notice will provide more information regarding the specific construction times and roadway closures.

RSI FAQ re: Program Termination

The RSI program used funds from Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to treat homes from the effects of noise from LAX. As of May 11, 2018, LAWA and FAA will no longer reimburse the city for RSI administrative expenditures. This means the RSI program cannot continue unless expenses are paid from the City’s general fund and there is no predictable schedule when construction can restart. Terms and conditions for performing RSI work have changed and some of the criteria are yet to be resolved. As such, the city does not feel that there is a benefit to the residents for continuing to be involved in this process. Instead, staff recommends that the airport be responsible for mitigating the noise it creates which is the normal RSI arrangement throughout the country. With no source of funding, staff is recommending council direct the City Manager to terminate El Segundo’s RSI program.
