Ord 19-67 11/13/2019 10:49 AMEric Lein Against Forcing unwilling customers to pay private trash haulers for unnecessary empty trash carts does NOT align with the rate-setting requirements set forth in MN Stat Chapter 443. Michael Kuchta's method (Steps 1,2,3,4,5,6) will come closer to complying with (1) MN Statute 443.29: "The rates for rubbish disposal shall be a charge against the premises from which rubbish is collected..." AND (2) MN Stat 443.28: "...Such rates shall be as nearly as possible just and reasonable, taking into account the character, kind, and quality of service, of rubbish and method of disposition, the number of people served at each place of collection, and all other factors that enter into cost of service..." +2

Ord 19-67 11/6/2019 3:28 PMMichael Kuchta Against Part 6: This approach meets the contractual requirement that costs be “based on ... the actual average tonnages collected per gallon per household in the prior 12 months.” If you divide those results by the total households in each service level, you get more equitable individual pricing, yet the rates still generate $24,588,636 in revenue. Here’s what every level would pay under this fair share proposal: • 35-gallon cart, every other week: $7.97 per month / $95.65 per year • 35-gallon cart, weekly: $15.94 / $191.31 • 65-gallon cart, weekly: $29.61 / $355.28 • 95-gallon cart, weekly: $43.27 / $519.26 If you compare these costs with current, 2019 rates, every service level gets a price cut except the highest users. The differences: • 35-gallon cart, every other week: Price cut of $147.71 per year / $12.31 per month • 35-gallon cart, weekly: Price cut of $89.97 / $7.50 • 65-gallon cart, weekly: Price cut of $28.96 / $2.41 • 95-gallon cart, weekly: Price increase of $109.46 / $9.12 +2
Ord 19-67 11/6/2019 3:27 PMMichael Kuchta Against Part 5: Step Four: Because we know how many households are in each service level, and the rates that Ordinance 19-67 sets for each level, we can calculate how much revenue coordinated collection needs to generate from monthly fees. The total: $24,588,636. Step Five: Combining all this information, we now know enough to overhaul rates so each level of service pays its fair share. As we saw in Step Three, the highest-use households -- those with a 95-gallon cart -- generate 42.5% of the total annual trash. So, they should contribute 42.5% of the cost. (Under Ordinance 19-67, high-use households actually would pay only 32.5% of the costs. This locks in the current imbalance that forces low-use households to continue subsidizing high-use households.) To make sure households pay based on their usage, we multiply the revenue the city needs ($24.6 million) by the percentage of trash each level generates. +2
Ord 19-67 11/6/2019 3:26 PMMichael Kuchta Against Part 4: Step Two: The city also knows how many households subscribe to which level of service: • 35-gallon cart emptied every other week: 5,074 • 35-gallon cart emptied weekly: 17,606 • 65-gallon cart emptied weekly: 28,912 • 95-gallon cart emptied weekly: 20,150 With this information, we can get a rough idea of how much total trash households generate at each level. For example, at the 95-gallon level, we multiply 20,150 households by an annual capacity of 4,940 gallons (52 weeks, 95 gallons each week). The math shows these households have the capacity to generate 99,541,000 gallons of trash a year. Combined, all 71,742 households generate nearly 234 million gallons of trash a year. Step Three: With those numbers, we can calculate what percentage of trash each level of service has the capacity to generate: • 35-gallon cart, every other week: 2% • 35-gallon cart, weekly: 13.7% • 65-gallon cart, weekly: 41.8% • 95-gallon cart, weekly: 42.5% +2
Ord 19-67 11/6/2019 3:25 PMMichael Kuchta Against Part 3: The fair share proposal outlined below makes real change. Based on real-world data (as required by the contract), this proposal cuts rates by 60 percent for the lowest users, while raising rates by about $9 a month for the highest users. This proposal relies on the same principle we use in the everyday world when we ask for separate checks at a restaurant: Everyone pays for what they individually consume. With trash, low-use households generate only one-fifth as much as high-use households, so they should pay one-fifth the cost. Simple. Further, the fair share proposal encourages households to reduce waste because it significantly reduces their individual costs when they do. This approach is common sense, fair, easy to understand, and easy to implement. It’s five easy steps. Step One: Start with the basics. The city has four levels of residential trash service. Based on cart size and how often trash is picked up, we know the volume of trash that each level of service generates +2
Ord 19-67 11/6/2019 3:24 PMMichael Kuchta Against Part 2: This presents a great opportunity for the Council to overhaul pricing, to be responsive to city residents, to cut trash fees for more than 70 percent of households, to allow households to pay their fair share based on how much trash they actually generate, and still produce the revenue needed to support coordinated collection. Unfortunately, Ordinance 19-67, as written, does not do that. The current draft is a lost opportunity. It makes only incremental changes, reducing rates across the board by about $1 a month. That approach perpetuates the perverse incentives and inequities that now exist. I do not profess to understand all the intricacies of the 52-page contract. But it seems the language in Section 3.1.5 allows the city much more discretion in how it adjusts rates than the approach being taken in Ordinance 19-67. Even the haulers consortium, in a letter to the city dated Sept. 30, says “pricing under the OTC contract is not strictly formulaic.” +2
Ord 19-67 11/6/2019 3:24 PMMichael Kuchta Against Part 1: I will be working the evening of Nov. 6 and unable to attend the public hearing in person to testify on the 2020 trash rates proposed in Ordinance 19-67. But I’d encourage you to modify the ordinance, relying on the approach described below. During the public debate leading to the Nov. 5 referendum, there was one thing people on the “yes” and “no” sides both seemed to agree on: The contract could be better. One of the most common criticisms? Pricing. Current pricing encourages waste instead of encouraging waste reduction. Under current prices, households that generate the least trash subsidize households that generate the most trash. As you know, the contract with haulers does allow price adjustments every year. In fact, some would say the contract mandates adjustments. +3
