My property doesn't generate that much waste. Why am I being charged at the High (or Medium) rate?
The SBC has been established to fund the costs of providing a solid waste disposal system, which is required by Maryland law. The SBC does not cover the cost of actual disposal of waste. SBC revenues are used to make disposal facilities available. The county has conducted studies of actual waste generation from non-residential properties, and has classified them according to their potential for waste generation.
Although your business or activity may not currently generate as much waste as other may, it has the potential to do so. It is the most equitable method of distributing the costs of providing the solid waste system. Please call 301-952-7635 for more information.
