Action Requested

Authorization to waive additional County Landfill Tipping Fees for private work in the amount of approximately $21,350 by permitting the Contractor for the San Remo Shores Stormwater Discharge Maintenance Project to haul this additional sediment to the County Landfill to use as daily cover which will offset the purchase and use of daily cover purchased annually by Landfill Operations.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Solid Waste Comprehensive Plan & Solid Waste Franchise Agreement

Background Discussion
  • April 24, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved a Stormwater Discharge Maintenance Program.  The program objective is to clean the sediment at each of the stormwater outfall pipes discharging into any public navigational canal.
  • May 10, 2016, the BCC approved a Landfill Tipping  Fee Waiver for approximately 500 cubic yards  of sediment removal from the San Remo Shores Stormwater Discharge Maintenance Project.
  • May 12, 2016, Duncan Seawall, who is the contractor for the San Remo Shores Stormwater Discharge Maintenance Project, inquired as to whether private work performed at the same location could have their landfill tipping fees waived.  Duncan estimates that approximately 350 additional cubic yards of sediment could be dredged at the request of the residents. 
  • Since Manatee County no longer does navigational dredging, staff has encouraged private residents to take advantage of additional dredging while our contractor is in the area removing sediment from our outfalls.  The Landfill Tipping Fee Waiver for this private work is an additional incentive for the residents to take advantage of this additional dredging.
  • The sediment from the private work will be similar to the material that is removed from the outfalls.  The sediment will have to pass the paint filter test before transporting to the County Landfill.
  • See e-mail from Landfill dated 5/19/16.
