Solid Waste Policy Report Financial Review of Waste Hauler


In 2013, we assisted the City in a financial review of its exclusive waste hauler, MarBorg Industries, Inc. We allocated MarBorg’s revenues, expenses, and profitability among the various jurisdictions it serves in Santa Barbara County. We analyzed the impact of various negotiating deal points on MarBorg’s revenue and profitability in the City of Santa Barbara.

In 2003, we assisted the City in evaluating a request by MarBorg Industries, Inc. to extend its contract term by 10 years to secure financing for its C&D MRF through the California Pollution Control Financing Authority (CPCFA). We prepared a policy report for the City Council and assisted with contract negotiations.
