Some changes are proposed to charges for refuse and recycling, and for waste disposal.

Trade Waste Bylaw

The Council is introducing a new Trade Waste Uniform Annual Charge under its Trade Waste Bylaw 2016. The charge will apply to Permitted Dischargers and cover the administration costs relating to the Trade Waste consenting process. The charge will be set at $160 (including GST) per year. Operating costs for the wastewater service provided to Permitted Dischargers will continue to be recovered through the rates assessed for each property.
