The Act requires that any local governments that provide solid waste management services publish annually, on or before October 1, a notice in a newspaper of general circulation, the full cost of its solid waste management services for the previous fiscal year. In addition, the Act and Full Cost Disclosure Regulation 61-107.2 require that each local government submit annual Full Cost Disclosure information to DHEC on or before October 15 of each year.
While counties have been submitting their full-cost data on-line for a few years, for the first time, cities will be able use the same program, Re-TRAC Connect, which is actually an upgrade to the original version. This program is Web-based and only requires a computer and Internet connection to complete.
It is important to note that work is still being done in the Full-Cost section of Re-TRAC Connect. Currently, you can enter the full-cost information but the report that is generated from that data and necessary to publish in the local paper will not be available until after September 1. Please contact Stefanie Vandiver at 803.896.4229 for specifics.
For additional information on full-cost, please review the "Full Cost Instruction Manual." This guidance document has been developed by DHEC to assist local governments in meeting the requirements of the Full-Cost Disclosure Regulation.
