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. 3166, 2020, Amendment Bylaw No. 3283, 2023.
Application for the Exemption of Tipping Fees – for Non Profit Charities
The fee to dispose of refuse and demolition, land clearing and construction waste in other than “small loads” is $96 per tonne as of January 1, 2023 (subject to change) or a $6 minimum charge per load. Load weights are measured on scales at the landfill.
A small load user fee of $6.00 per visit, for loads up to 100 kg, applies to all loads of household refuse delivered to the Foothills Boulevard Regional Landfill. Loads weighing more than 100 kg are charged based on the current tipping fee rate ($96 per tonne as of January 1, 2023). If the load contains recycling or yard and garden waste only, no fee will apply. If there is both garbage and recyclables, you are encouraged to separate the load for the recycling and garbage portions to be weighed separately. If the load is mixed and not separated, you will be charged based on the entire weight of the load.
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).
Salvaging of materials from dumping areas, transfer bins, recycling bins or the Marshalling Area is not permitted.
