RESOLUTION NO. 93- 51 <br />A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF <br />NEWPORT BEACH MODIFYING A RECYCLING SERVICE <br />FEE AND RESCINDING RESOLUTION NO. 92-70. <br />• WHEREAS, the State of California has determined that the amount of <br />solid waste generated in the State, coupled with the diminishing landfill <br />space and the potential adverse environmental impacts of landfilling, <br />create an urgent need for State and Local agencies to enact and <br />implement aggressive new integrated waste management programs; and <br />WHEREAS, the Legislature has mandated each City and County to <br />reduce the amount of solid waste disposed of in landfills by recycling at <br />least 25% of the solid waste stream; and <br />WHEREAS, the Newport Beach City Council has enacted an <br />ordinance which authorizes the imposition of a recycling service fee <br />subject to certain limitations; and <br />WHEREAS, the City of Newport Beach has entered into a written <br />contract with CRT, Inc. pursuant to which the latter will accept the City's <br />waste stream, recycle at least 25% of the contents, and transport the <br />remaining waste to a disposal site approved by law.
