6:1 New Paragraph; Charges for the Removal of Solid Waste. Amend RSA 149-M:17 by inserting after paragraph V the following new paragraph:

VI. A town which charges fees for the use of a solid waste facility, or for any other type of solid waste disposal services, including collection, hauling, separation, recycling, or composting, may bill such fees to the owner of the property where the solid waste originates, or which is otherwise benefited by such services, irrespective of whether the facility or other services are provided by the town, another town, a combination of towns, a district, or by a private operator with which the town, towns, or district have contracted.

(a) The establishment of such fees shall be governed by RSA 41:9-a, or other applicable statute or charter provision.

(b) Such charges shall create a lien upon the benefited real estate.

(c) A town may collect such charges by the use of any of the collection procedures authorized by RSA 38:22. Interest on overdue charges shall be assessed in accordance with RSA 76:13.

(d) Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to prevent a town from collecting charges for solid waste disposal services in some other manner, including but not limited to collection at the facility at the time of disposal.

6:2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
