Starting January 1, it will cost more to dispose of garbage at two Central Okanagan facilities.
Tipping fee increases for garbage and other solid waste materials were approved earlier this year by the Regional District Board for the Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Centre and the City of Kelowna for the Glenmore landfill, and apply to both residential and commercial customers.
As of January 1st 2013, the flat fee for up to 250 kg of garbage will be $10.00 (now $8).
- Up to 250 kilograms of yard waste will continue to be accepted free of charge
Regional District Waste Reduction Manager Peter Rotheisler says the increase in fees reflects the increasing cost of managing solid waste in our region, “Hopefully this increase will also provide incentive to residents and businesses to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible.”
For more information on tipping fee increases, visit RDCO online, or contact the Regional Waste Reduction Office, at 250-469-6250.
