How is the solid waste collection fee calculated?

It's based on the true cost-of-service which includes, the annual solid waste and automated recycling collection services contract costs, a percentage of key Canton personnel's wages to manage the program, some printing and publishing costs, overhead expenses for administration and a contingency for unplanned expenses. The total expenses are divided by the total number of residential customers to arrive at the $195 fee.
