SF Chron Looks At The Waste Board
Interesting look at California's Integrated Waste Management Board by the San Francisco Chronicle this morning. Now we know how they're funded:
"Instead, most of the waste board's $235 million cost is paid for by trash and recycling fees the state collects from four major sources: $1.40 per ton collected from landfills; 16 cents a gallon from the sale of motor oil; $1 per new tire sold in California; and $8 to $25 collected on sales of new televisions and computer monitors."
The comments on the story are worth a read, too. Only ten, so far, but I was surprised they were all opposed to the board.
