Oregon Statutes - Chapter 459 - Solid Waste Management - Section 459.112 - Findings; fee for disposal of solid waste generated outside region.

(1) The Legislative Assembly finds:

(a) Solid waste management is a regional concern;

(b) Management of solid waste among the states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington and those counties in California and Nevada that share a common border with Oregon is interconnected and decisions related to solid waste management in one state can affect solid waste management in the other two states;

(c) It is appropriate that solid waste be managed on a regional basis; and

(d) It is not Oregonís responsibility to manage solid waste for states outside the region.

(2) Therefore, the Legislative Assembly finds it is appropriate that Oregon impose a fee for the disposal of solid waste in Oregon that was generated outside the region in order to:

(a) Compensate Oregon for managing solid waste for states outside the region; and

(b) Assure that the disposal of solid waste in Oregon is not less expensive for a state outside the region than for the state to dispose of the solid waste within the state. [1991 c.765 §3]
