Franchise Fee: The County established waste hauler designated areas and charges a Franchise Fee of 10% to waste haulers. The hauler pays these fees monthly based upon the revenue. The hauler also makes an annual recycling report showing how many tons of solid waste they have recycled in compliance with State regulations.


Through the District formation process, those fees paid in Wrightwood by CR&R Environmental Services have been reassigned to the WCSD through a new agreement contract. Estimated revenue: $54,000 annually
