Due to the Ministry of Environment’s regulations being enforced at landfills across the province and the increased cost of meeting these standards, REACT will be increasing landfill fees and the price of garbage tags effective May 1, 2018.
Garbage tags will be $2.50 a tag and 1⁄2 tags will no longer be accepted at transfer stations or landfills. A full tag must be on each 77 L bag or can (this also applies to curbside pickup tag-a-bag).
A minimum charge of $5.00 will be implemented to all waste brought to a landfill or transfer station. You will also be required to provide ID showing proof of residency (driver’s license/utility bill). If you are not a REACT member, you will be charged a higher rate.
Your load must be secured or tarped to prevent littering on roads and in ditches. Should your load not be properly contained, you will be charged double the fee of your load or you possibly could be denied entrance to the site.
For more information please contact the REACT office at (306) 682-1955.
