Central Cariboo Transfer Station tipping fees increasing in 2019

Central Cariboo Transfer Station tipping fees increasing in 2019

Amount residents can drop off for free will decrease from 200 down to 100 kilograms

  • Dec. 14, 2018 8:00 p.m.

Residents using the Central Cariboo Transfer Station on Frizzi Road can expect changes beginning in 2019 as rates and free disposal weight limits will go to a user pay system.

As of January 4, 2019, residents will be able to drop off 100 kilograms of waste for free at the transfer station, which is a decrease from the current limit of 200 kilograms without charge.

Any loads over 100 kilograms will be charged for the entire weight of the load.

The move comes, the CRD said in a press release, as the City and CRD move towards a system where residents who are generating above average amounts of waste pay a fee instead of taxpayers covering the cost.

Waste disposal rates are changing as well for loads more than 100 kilograms and to all commercial loads, regardless of weight.

In 2018, more than 35,000 vehicles crossed the scale at the station with an average weight of 36 kilograms.

Most people’s loads are household waste and weigh less than 100 kilograms, most users at the site will not be affected by these changes.

The CRD said the actual cost of managing household waste in the Central Cariboo is over $0.10 per kg ($100 per tonne); however, fees for household waste are only $0.08 per kilogram ($80 per tonne) for residential loads over 100 kilograms and all commercial load weights.

The remaining costs are paid through taxation.


Wood waste and debris from FireSmart activities will still be accepted free at the Central Cariboo Transfer Station (and all CRD disposal sites) in 2019 regardless of weight or residential or commercial origin.

Please make sure to pre-sort clean wood waste, metals and recyclables out of demolition and construction waste. Not only does this help with waste disposal, but it decreases the weight and saves users money on the cost of their load.

There is a landfill ban on recyclables including, but not limited to: deposit beverage containers; pharmaceuticals; used oil; empty oil containers; oil filters; paints; lead-acid batteries; antifreeze; antifreeze containers; electronics; electrical products including batteries and accessories; passenger and light truck tires; large and small appliances; scrap metal; clean wood waste; corrugated cardboard; and office paper.
