It has been recommended that fees be adjusted, raising the 3-can fee from $4.25 to $5.00.
On Oct. 2, 2012, the Madera County Board of Supervisors approved a contract with Redrock Environmental to operate the Fairmead Landfill and North Fork Transfer Station. On Oct. 9, 2012 the Board gave direction staff to prepare uniform public rates at the Fairmead Landfill and North Fork Transfer station. Vang says the staff “met with each contractor and agency, with the assistance of GBB Consulting, and negotiated the attached contracts with uniform rates.”
According to Vang, “The convenience rates and all charges have been rounded to allow quicker money transfers, and promote shorter lines at both facilities.”
