OAR 340-083-0530
Payments to Economically-Distressed Counties


For the nine most economically-distressed counties identified in OAR 340-083-0510 (Distressed County Index), the rebate paid to the county as specified in OAR 340-083-0500 (Rebates to Distressed Counties) (1) is $0.28 multiplied by the “adjusted tonnage disposed” for that county calculated under OAR 340-083-0520 (Tonnage Calculation).


If a city within one of the nine most economically-distressed counties owns or operates a land disposal site, energy-recovery facility or incinerator, DEQ shall distribute to the city instead of the county the portion of the rebate based on tons of solid waste disposed that was generated in the county and disposed of at the land disposal site or energy recovery facility or incinerator owned by the city.


Moneys a city or county receives through the rebate program may be used only for:


Purposes authorized in ORS 459A.120 (Use of additional fees);


Operating solid waste disposal facilities; or


Reducing disposal fees.
