Council recently completed a review of the current local solid waste collection and disposal service being provided to residents of Montrose by the Village. This service includes curb pick-up of garbage bags with the Village Garbage Truck,transportation of waste to the McKelvey Creek Landfill and payment of the associated tipping fees.
This review included completing a yearly revenue and expenditure comparison for the service that is currently provided. Additionally, considerations of future impacts on service delivery with respect to supply of bags, equipment replacement schedules, future landfill tipping fee charges, and future operation & maintenance charges were assessed.
As a result of this review, Council has decided that the preferred course of action was to increase revenues of the service (i.e. User Fees on garbage bags) rather than decrease expenditures of the service (i.e. reducing service levels to a biweekly pick-up schedule).
As such, this notice is provided to residents of Montrose that effective upon the anticipated adoption of the Village's new User Fee Bylaw (expected on October 19, 2015), Garbage Bag User Fee Rates will be increased to $3.50 / bag in order to help cover the annual costs of the local Solid Waste Collection and Disposal Service.
