The Alameda County Source Reduction and Recycling Board has a vacancy in the category of "Solid Waste Industry Representative." The appointee must live in Alameda County. Term of the appointment is two-years, and Board Members are eligible for re-appointment to one additional two-year term.
The Recycling Board administers the voter-approved Waste Reduction and Recycling Initiative, which levies an $8.23 per ton landfill disposal fee that generates approximately $8.0 million per year for waste reduction and recycling programs in Alameda County. Fifty percent of the money is returned to local jurisdictions on a per-capita basis. The balance is appropriated by the Board for countywide source reduction and recycling programs, public education, recycled product procurement, market development and grants to community organizations.
