Background: On December 31, 1970, the California Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) approved an ordinance prohibiting the issuance of a building permit for any Lake Tahoe occupancy unless solid waste export is provided by a licensed or franchised solid waste hauler, or by a public agency.  In October 1972, El Dorado County voters passed a mandatory collection ordinance for all residential units in the unincorporated area of the Lake Tahoe Basin.  In January 1999 the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors approved Ordinance No. 4525 which implemented a lien process for delinquent accounts in the mandatory collection areas.
 
 
Reason for Recommendation:
The goals of mandatory refuse collection are to: a) reduce illegal disposal; b) provide for expanded disposal, recycling and yard waste programs which all help toward the County's compliance with AB 939 which mandated 50% diversion by the year 2000; and c) institute a consolidated and single refuse collection rate within designated mandatory collection areas.   
 
Action to be taken following Board approval: Upon execution, forward a copy of the Resolution to County Recorder's Office for recording then forward a copy of the Recorded Resolution to Department.
