The Rivanna Solid Waste Authority (RSWA) met Tuesday afternoon to discuss its operating budget for the coming fiscal year. Not much is changing on the books for the waste disposal group.
The RSWA contract with Charlottesville and Albemarle County ensures it will continue offering existing services to each area through at least next year. But the rising cost of fuel is factoring into some of the costs associated with waste removal services.
RSWA Executive Director Tom Frederick stated, "We do take a hard look at what the cost of each of those services are in compiling our budget."
Also factored into the budget is RSWA's commitment to offering hazardous waste amnesty days twice a year at no cost to neighbors in the city and county.
