It’s going to cost more to get rid of garbage.
Starting April 8, fees are climbing for the disposal of sold waste at the landfills in Greater Vernon, Armstrong-Spallumcheen, Lumby, Kingfisher and Cherryville.
“The most significant changes are an increase in the regular refuse disposal fee from $88 to $90.50 a tonne,” said Nicole Kohnert, manager of regional engineering services, adding that the minimum charge remains $3.
“The fee for construction and demolition waste will increase by $20 a tonne to $180 a tonne.”
The fee for disposal of loads that contain recyclable material, such as asphalt roofing, yard and garden waste, glass, scrap metal and wood, increases by $20 to $180 a tonne.
Asphalt roofing disposal will climb by $20 to $180 a tonne and the fee for mattresses and box springs will increase by $1 to $7 a unit.
