2021-2022 Proposed Fee Schedule



Environmental Management Department (EMD) delayed its proposal to adjust its fee schedule for the 2020-2021 fiscal year, due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. EMD’s fee schedule is set to expire June 30, 2021 and must be brought back to the Board of Supervisors for approval. 


EMD continues to provide education and inspections services to Sacramento County residents and businesses by fulfilling the department’s mission to protect public health and the environment.  Services are provided across a variety of programs such as public drinking water, solid waste, recycling, hazardous materials storage and retail food establishments.


To sustain these services, EMD completed a fee study in 2019 to accurately calculate the fee schedule. EMD has not updated the fee schedule for many of its programs in ten years. While most fees will remain the same, some will be increased, and in many cases, over a 3-5 year period. 


EMD understands this time is difficult for many businesses and residents of Sacramento County and weighs every option carefully before adjusting any of its fees. View the proposed EMD Fee Schedule below for a detailed list of all EMD programs and the corresponding service fee.
