Waste Commission Changing Fees To Get Yard Waste Out Of Landfill

The Fundy Region Solid Waste Commission will be cracking down on yard waste getting mixed in with garbage by hitting haulers where it hurts their pocketbooks. 

The Commission's Brenda McCallum says they will double the 108 dollars a ton tipping fee for garbage if there is yard waste, meaning leaves, twigs, branches and weeds mixed in.

Leaves in black bags won't be picked up and the Commission is trying to get the solid orange bags out of stores as well. 

The tipping fee for compost is only 28 dollars a ton.
