REGARDING INCREASE TIPPING FEES FOR CERTAIN ITEMS
CHANGE TO THE FREE TAG INCENTIVE POLICY
Please be advised that on July 21, 2017 Council passed By-Law #61-17 and Schedule ‘F’ Fees and Charges of this By-Law; increased tipping fees for the disposal of certain items at the Township’s Waste Sites ie; mattresses, appliances with Freon, furniture, bulky plastic and bin items.
Council also passed By-Law #60-17, being a revised Waste Disposal By-Law. The most significant change in this By-Law is to the Free Bag Tag Incentive policy.
The Township will continue to provide Free Bag Tags for each bag of extra recycling with certain exceptions. The following items are not eligible for a Free Bag Tag: newspapers, magazines, catalogues, boxboard; corrugated cardboard; plastic shopping bags; heavy plastic wrap; polystyrene and styrofoam.
Also, please note that bag tags shall only be used for the disposal of extra household waste. Bag Tags are no longer accepted as payment for the disposal of Bulky Waste, Construction Waste and White Goods with Freon.
These changes are effective August 21st, 2017. Please refer to our website at www.northfrontenac.com for the new By-laws or contact our office 613-479-2231 or1-800-234-3953.
