Refuse Rate Board Meetings And Related Events

The Refuse Rate Board reviews the costs and operations of San Francisco refuse collectors and adopts rate orders with the goal of maintaining rate stability and accountability based on evidence and records made during public hearings. The Refuse Rate Board is composed of the City Administrator (chair) the General Manager of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, and an appointed Ratepayer Representative.

In June 2022, San Francisco voters passed Proposition F to reform the City’s refuse rate setting process. The Refuse Rate Administrator has initiated the rate-setting process and is accepting rate change request forms. Public meetings will begin in March. New rates will be determined by the Refuse Rate Board this summer and will go into effect October 1st, 2023.

The refuse rate-setting process for Rate Year ending in 2024 has started
