Community Matters: Tipping Fees

In December 2002 expansion of the Puente Hills Landfill was approved by the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission through a Conditional Use Permit. As part of this permit a condition was imposed on the Landfill that requires that $1 be paid into a Community Benefit and Environmental Education Trust Fund for each ton of solid waste placed in the landfill until the permit expires in 2013. The monies placed in this fund are commonly referred to as “tipping fees.” According to the permit, the purpose of the fund created with the tipping fees is to provide resources for environmental, educational, and quality of life programs and regional public facilities that primarily benefit the Hacienda Heights and Avocado Heights communities. To learn about efforts thus far in selecting projects and programs to be funded by the tipping fees, please see the Tipping Fee Documents at: http://knabe.com/cities/haciendaheights.html or contact the project consultant Mr. Jeffrey Lambert at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
