City of Oakland and California Waste Solutions Settle Major Recycling Case Benefitting Oakland Ratepayers

The Oakland City Council approved this week settlement of the City’s lawsuit against California Waste Solutions, Inc. (CWS) after years of litigation to recover for Oakland ratepayers approximately $6 million in overcharges for bringing recycling carts at multi-family buildings out to the curb ( “backyard service”). The settlement requires that CWS refund approximately 2,000 multi-family building owners for those years of overcharging, and lower their rates for backyard service for recycling carts going forward. The settlement will make these Oakland ratepayers whole, remedying the harm they suffered for years as a result of CWS’ overcharging practices.
