It’s going to cost sewage haulers more to dump after Leduc County’s approval of a rate increase at their Nov. 4 Council meeting.

Council wants to see the Nisku Sewage Transfer Station become fully automated. In order to pay for the automation plan, they directed staff to accumulate the necessary funds through the operation of the facility only. This has involved annual increases to achieve the projected reserve values.

Currently, it costs $3.30 per cubic meter or $16.50 per axle. To ensure the automation can happen in the timeliest manner possible, council approved a 10 per cent fee adjustment for 2015 that will result in haulers being charged $3.63 per cubic meter or $18.15 per axle for hauled waste.

Haulers will be told immediately of the change in rates so they can incorporate it into their upcoming contracts.
