Side Letter of Agreement:   Budget and Balancing Account for Household Hazardous Waste Operations

The Post-Collection Agreement (PCA) includes Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) services to be provided by Republic Services. The PCA include provisions for an annual HHW budget for operation and administration of the HHW programs provided by Republic as part of the PCA. The PCA does not include provisions for a balancing account. Rather than negotiate with Republic Services each year on the specifics of the HHW Budget, and because there are no provisions for a balancing account in the PCA, RecycleMore entered into a side agreement with Republic Services in January 2019. 

As required by the HHW Side Letter Agreement, the Authority completed a review of actual Household Hazardous Waste (“HHW”) program expenses for the years 2014-2018. The independent “Review of Household Hazardous Waste Expenditures for the Years 2014-2018” was conducted by Municipal Resources Group (“MRG”).  

Based on the review of the MRG expense review and WCCIWMA Board direction in September 2019, the First Amendment to and Restatement of the Side Letter accomplished the following:

  1. Combines expenses for fuel, utilities, property taxes and insurance into a new category of Facility and Administrative Costs. In addition to these four expenses, this new category includes the costs for accounting support, site maintenance and permit fees.
  1. Resets expenditures specified in the Side Letter for future CPI increases. The First Amendment provides that the budget amounts for several expense categories will be set by increasing the prior year budget by 0.85% of the CPI and any variance between budget and actual costs will be corrected after the Annual Statement is reviewed and approved.  
  1. Amends and restates Exhibit A to the Side Letter to conform with the MRG expense review recommendations and Board direction.
