Yes, ratepayers will have an opportunity to ask questions and hear more information at a public Community Forum on Thursday, September 9. 

You may also submit a written protest. Any record owner of a parcel upon which the Solid Waste Service Fees are proposed for imposition and any tenant directly liable for the payment of Solid Waste Service Fees (i.e., a customer of record) may submit a written protest to the proposed rate increases to the City’s Solid Waste Service Fees; provided, however, only one written protest will be counted per identified parcel.


  • Any written protest must: (1) state that the identified property owner or tenant is in opposition to the proposed rate increases to the Solid Waste Service Fees; (2) provide the location of the identified parcel (by street address or assessor’s parcel number); and (3) include the name and signature of the property owner or tenant submitting the protest.
  • Written protests may be submitted by mail or in person to the City Clerk at 21815 Pioneer Boulevard, Hawaiian Gardens, California 90716, or at the Public Hearing (date and time noted above), provided they are received prior to the close of the Public Hearing, which will occur when the public testimony on the proposed increases and adjustments is concluded. Any protest submitted via e-mail or other electronic means will not be accepted. Please identify on the front of the envelope for any written protest, whether mailed or submitted in person to the City Clerk, Attn: Public Hearing on Solid Waste Rate Increases.
