ARLINGTON, Virginia , June 5, 2023 (press release) –

Steven White, chapter chair for the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) Ohio chapter, along with several member companies, testified against SB 119, legislation that would dramatically increase (in some cases more than 500%) the governmental fees associated with the disposal of construction and demolition debris and solid waste in Ohio. If adopted, the price for managing waste regardless of origin would increase dramatically. In all material respects, this is a substantial tax increase on residents, municipalities and businesses within the state of Ohio.

“SB 119, if adopted as introduced, would increase the costs of waste disposal in Ohio between $160 million and $200 million with no demonstrated need or improvements to Ohio’s waste management planning or regulatory programs,” said White.

White suggested that at a time when Ohioans are recovering from the economic effects of COVID-19, they are fighting inflation and attempting to revitalize brownfield areas in their communities by demolishing dilapidated structures. Ohioans do not need unneeded waste management fee increases.
