Stuart Baron owes nearly $200 to a local trash hauler for unpaid charges he doesn't plan on paying. The bachelor said he only generates one grocery bag of rubbish per month, disposes of it at the business where he works in Irvine, and recycles all his paper, cans and bottles. Baron contends that a mandatory fee charged by the city's hauler, Solag Disposal Inc., is a tax because he doesn't receive a service in return. "You can't have a mandatory fee," Baron said. "It's an oxymoron."

Grass clippings, leaves and wood chips will be hauled off the same day as regular neighborhood trash collection when the city's green waste recycling program begins next week. Residents must provide barrels or plastic bags for the collection, said Ken Montgomery, director of public works. Authorities expect to generate nearly 300,000 pounds of yard waste each month just from Laguna Niguel, said Daniel Batty, recycling manager at Solag Disposal Inc. in San Juan Capistrano.

With the city's waste collection and recycling franchise about to change hands, the City Council is asking for a $100,000 insurance policy to make sure the new garbage collectors live up to their end of the agreement. Last week, council members authorized CR&R Inc. to assume responsibility for the city's trash collection service from Solag Disposal Inc., which had a contract with the city until June 2007.

The city has started a telephone hot line for residents who have questions or comments about solid waste and recycling. The hot line allows the city to respond to inquiries in a more efficient way, according to Mort August, director of public works and engineering services. For example, a resident may want to use the hot line to ask to be exempted from trash service. The caller can leave his or her name, address and telephone number, and the city will respond.

The city's trash hauler will take over waste-disposal billing from the city starting Friday. Although waste hauling rates will not be affected, city officials warn that residents will see higher bills because Solag Disposal Inc. sends out bills every 90 days rather than the 60-day period used by the city. Another difference in billing practices is that the city sent invoices covering the previous 60 days of service. Solag bills for trash service in advance.
