|Rep. Garth D. Everett|
Republican Rep. Garth Everett of Muncy wants to increase that funding and has introduced HB 1624 that would extend the 25-cents per three cubic yards tip fee to residual waste disposed of at residual waste landfills.
In a letter to his Houses colleagues, Everett said that, "In discussions with folks in the waste industry, I found no rationale for assessing these fees on one classification of landfills and not another."
Everett estimated that his legislation could yield nearly an additional $1 million for recycling programs and $1.6 million for Growing Greener.
The bill was referred yesterday to the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee.
