Background Discussion

Manatee County entered into an Agreement for solid waste with the Town of Longboat Key dated January 18, 1994, which expired on or about January 17, 2014.  The Agreement was necessary for the Manatee County landfill to accept solid waste collected within the Town of Longboat Key from real property situated in Sarasota County.

Prior to the expiration date of the 1994 Agreement, Manatee County proposed a new Agreement for solid waste with the Town of Longboat Key.  This Agreement contains the following significant provisions:

  • Solid waste collected within the boundaries of the Town of Longboat Key, including real property located in Sarasota County, will be transported to the Manatee County landfill for disposal.  The Town will be responsible for collecting and transporting the solid waste from its customers to the County’s landfill.
  • Vehicles transporting solid waste collected from real property located in Sarasota County will be identified by decals to distinguish them from vehicles transporting solid waste collected within Manatee County.  The Town will provide written notice to the County regarding the name of the company contracted by the Town for transporting solid waste and any temporary replacement company due to a disaster event or immediate termination of the Town’s contract.
  • The Town will pay tipping fees and charges for disposal of solid waste at the Manatee County landfill based on the rates established in the County’s resolution for landfill fees and charges.  The fees and charges for solid waste collected from real property located in Sarasota County will include an additional amount equal to 25% of the applicable rates charged for the same type of waste collected within Manatee County.
  • The Town will make alternative arrangements for disposal of yard trash, other vegetation, and construction and demolition debris generated as a result of a disaster event.  The Town will also make alternative arrangements for disposal of solid waste and disaster debris when the Manatee County landfill is closed or inaccessible as a result of a disaster event.
  • The Agreement commences upon execution by both parties and continues for twenty (20) years until September 30, 2034.  Upon written agreement by both parties, the Agreement may be renewed for one (1) additional period of ten (10) years, commencing on October 1, 2034, and expiring on September 30, 2044.

On February 18, 2014, the Town of Longboat Key Town Commission reviewed the proposed Agreement for solid waste at a Town work session.

On March 3, 2014, the Town of Longboat Key Town Commission unanimously approved the Agreement for solid waste.
