A fee is imposed on operators of mixed municipal solid waste disposal facilities corresponding to the amount of waste taken in. Waste residue from recycling facilities or resource recovery facilities is exempt from this fee if there is at least an 85 percent weight reduction in the solid waste processed. The money will be used to fund the research, development, and implementation of alternative solid waste management practices and resource recovery facilities.
