PRINCIPLE AND PURPOSE OF DIVERSION CREDIT PROGRAM
The District’s goal is to promote effective and long term recycling programs in the most cost-effective manner. The private sector is already providing a wide range of recycling services in Allen County. With this in mind, a Diversion Credit Program was created to reinforce the existing infrastructure and encourage expansion and growth of recycling services in order to increase residential/commercial recycling rates.
The District will pay processors a per ton processing fee or “credit” for eligible District generated residential/commercial waste processed at facilities located within the District. The credit is designed to make collection and processing of certain materials economically feasible.
