TIPPING FEES AND SITE REGULATIONS

A tipping fee is a charge levied for disposal of waste and is based on weight and type of material. Tipping fees apply to all solid waste, including “controlled waste”, refuse and demolition, land clearing and construction waste (DLC). Tipping Fees and Site Regulations are established as per Regional District of Fraser-Fort George Bylaw No. 3023.

Application for the Exemption of Tipping Fees – for Non Profit Charities

FEES

The fee to dispose of refuse and demolition, land clearing and construction waste in other than “small loads” is $82 per tonne (subject to change) or a $6 minimum charge per load. Load weights are measured on scales provided at the landfill.

SMALL LOAD

As of September 1, 2013, a small load user fee of $6.00 per visit, for loads up to 100 kg, will apply to all loads of household refuse delivered to the Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill. Loads weighing more than 100 kg will be charged based on the current tipping fee rate ($82 per tonne as of January 1, 2017). If your load contains recycling or yard and garden waste only, no fee will apply. If you have both garbage and recyclables, you are encouraged to separate your load so that the recycling and garbage portions can be weighed separately. If your load is mixed and not separated, you will be charged based on the entire weight of the load.

PAYMENT

Payment may be made by cash, cheque, MasterCard, VISA or debit card. Commercial customers may apply to the Regional District for credit accounts. Application forms are available from the Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill during operating hours or Financial Services at 155 George Street, Prince George, BC, between 8:45 am – 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm, Monday to Friday (excluding statutory holidays).
