Public Hearing - Required Use of Waste Wheelers

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING 

 

AN ORDINANCE OF THE COUNTY OF PLUMAS, STATE OF CALIFORNIA,

AMENDING SECTION 6-10.108 OF ARTICLE 2 OF CHAPTER 10 OF TITLE 6 OF THE PLUMAS COUNTY CODE

An amendment has been proposed to Section 6-10.108 of the Plumas County Code that will require the use of “waste-wheeler” type refuse containers by curbside collection customers in Franchise Areas No. 1 and No. 2 in Plumas County.  These containers will facilitate the use of automated refuse collection vehicles, commonly known as “side-loader” trucks, which require only one operator to service refuse containers.  This amendment is being proposed to allow for more efficient refuse collection and to prevent injury to sanitation workers caused by the repetitive lifting of heavy containers, and to reduce the associated costs of lost working days and related medical costs.  

Pursuant to this Notice, the Plumas County Board of Supervisors will conduct a Public Hearing on the proposed amendment on August 3, 2021 beginning at 1:00 PM in the Board of Supervisors Meeting Room located in the Courthouse (Room 308) at 520 Main Street, Quincy, California.

During the Public Hearing, the Board of Supervisors will consider whether or not to adopt the amendment to Section 6-10.108 of the Plumas County Code.

This Ordinance shall become effective 30 days after its date of final adoption.

The following additional information is pertinent:

  • This proposed amendment is applicable only to residential and commercial curbside collection customers, not to self-haulers (commercial and residential), who transport their solid waste to any of the County Transfer Stations.
  • A copy of the proposed amendment is available for public viewing at 1834 East Main Street, Quincy, CA 95971 between the hours of 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday, or may be viewed HERE.
