After a discussion with the WM team and a re-calculation of the 2023 Fuel Cost Adjustment, the rate has been revised from a $0.12 increase (per unit, per month) down to $0.09 (per unit, per month). The new rate will take effect on January 1, 2023. This adjustment will impact the following QVCOG member communities: Aleppo Township, Avalon Borough, Bellevue Borough, Ben Avon Borough, Edgeworth Borough, Emsworth Borough, Glen Osborne Borough, Glenfield Borough, Kilbuck Township, Leet Township, and Sewickley Borough. A summary of the fuel cost adjustment that is included within the current Waste & Recycling Agreement can be found below:
Per the current Waste & Recycling Agreement, a fuel cost adjustment must be calculated for the second year of the contract which will go into effect on January 1, 2023. The fuel price variance shall be based upon a 52-week period (September 2021 - September 2022) as reported by the U.S. Department of Energy Weekly Retail for the price of On-Highway Diesel Price. Per the Agreement, fuel cost increases/decreases shall be calculated on or around September 1st of each year and become effective on January 1 of the contract year and shall be recalculated using the same formula and become effective on the same date each contract year thereafter.
