|Title||845||Resource Recovery Corporation|
|Part||3||Rhode Island Resource Recovery Annual Municipal Solid Waste Cap Allotments|
|Type of Filing||Adoption|
|Effective||06/06/2012 to 06/06/2012|
Purpose and Reason:
This rule is to establish more fair and consistent procedures for calculating the amount of solid waste that each municipality is allowed to dispose at the reduced legislatively determined fee, or ‘municipal solid waste cap’. The final rule was modified from the proposed rule in response to comments by the Town of New Shoreham regarding the unique nature of their seasonal household population. Specifically, the procedure was revised to accommodate differingassumptions on seasonal occupants per household and also defines a mechanism for municipalities to request an increase to their seasonal occupants per household assumption. In order to accommodate such differing seasonal assumptions across municipalities, the procedure was revised to simply reallocate the prior year’s waste and recycling generation on a pro rata basis by the seasonally adjusted population.
