Proposed 2017 Tipping Fee and Solid Waste Disposal Regulation Bylaw Changes

 
 
 

Dear Stakeholder,

The Tipping Fee and Solid Waste Disposal Regulation Bylaw describes solid waste regulations as well as tipping fees for waste and recycling at Metro Vancouver Transfer Stations, and is renewed annually.

Metro Vancouver is proposing several changes to the current Tipping Fee and Solid Waste Disposal Regulation Bylaw for 2017, as described in the Zero Waste Committee July 14th, 2016 Agenda Report, Item 5.2, titled Proposed 2017 Tipping Fee Bylaw Changes. Proposed changes are related to:

  • Organics and Clean Wood Disposal Ban Enforcement Thresholds
  • Personal Hygiene Products
  • Disposal ban surcharges for loads containing Hazardous and Operational Impact Materials or Product Stewardship Materials
  • Surcharges for unsecured loads

(Note that proposed 2017 tipping fees will be brought to the Board in October along with the proposed budget.)

You are invited to hear about, provide feedback on, and ask questions about the proposed changes at the following events:
