Is the COSF mandating vendors to charge residents the 5% fee?

No. The 5% infrastructure fee is charged to vendors. However, vendors may pass the cost to customers.

Purpose of Fee: The fee is to assist with managing the wear and tear on the roadways as a result of delivering waste collection services as well as to compensate vendors to provide sanitation services to uncovered residences.

What does this mean for residents? Solid Waste providers maintain the right to charge a fair, competitive market price. The City strongly encourages vendors to absorb the Infrastructure Maintenance fee; however, the decision to pass the fee to customers or to absorb is up to the vendor’s discretion. The City encourages citizens to contact their preferred vendor with concerns and preferences.
