What’s New for 2019
Sewer Service Charges
An increase to the Oro Loma Sanitary District Sewer Service Charges went into effect July 1, 2019. The increase is part of a five-year plan approved by the Board on May 17, 2016. The 2019 sewer service charge for single-family residential customers is now $275/year (from $256/year). The new rate remains the lowest in Alameda County.
Solid Waste Rates
The Board adopted new solid waste rates on August 20, 2019, following a public hearing. The effective date for the new rates is September 1, 2019. The District’s agreement with Waste Management provides for annual solid waste rate adjustments for customers, based on a combination factor that includes cost of living and benefit adjustments tied to Waste Management’s labor contracts. For 2019-2020, the contractual rate increase was 3.5%. The rate for a San Lorenzo single-family residential customer with a 35 gal trash cart is $18.79/month (from $18.15/month). The rates for residential recycling and green waste services remain unchanged at $4.60/month.
