For anyone who goes out to the Boreal Area Regional Waste Authority (BARWA) landfill with a smaller vehicle, there’s now an increased minimum charge for dropping off your garbage.
For regular household waste, the minimum gate fee for cars, SUVs, and others with an estimated weight of 0.15 tons will go from $7.50 to $10.00.
Half-ton or utility trailer with extension at an estimated weight of 0.75 tons will increase from $37.50 to $40.00.
Half Ton truck or utility trailer at an estimated weight of 0.5 tons will remain the same at $25.00. Yard roll offs also remain the same prices.
For compost, clean wood, and branches, cars and SUVs are raising from $7.50 to $10.00.
This change will go into effect on June 1.
