Municipal Solid Waste User and Tip Fee Analysis (Anne Arundel County, Maryland)

GBB has provided system and economic analysis, recycling and yard waste composting planning, and landfill planning, construction implementation and administration services to Anne Arundel.  GBB provided economic recommendations to the County on the user fee needs and revenues to pay for the Bureau of Solid Waste’s entire budget.  As part of this work, GBB prepared 20-year life-cycle cost and revenue projections on all aspects of the Bureau’s operations, including collection services, recycling, community education, administration, and landfill capital and operating costs.  Further, GBB provided certain feasibility analyses and contingency planning to evaluate costs of closing and relocating certain completed sections of the County landfill and for use of alternative disposal facilities prior to completion of an additional cell.  This included preparing detailed cost estimates for capital and operating expenditures for the life of the landfills, including construction, operation, closure, and post-closure activities.
