Reminder to Residents – Septic Disposal Rate Increase

January 12, 2016 - In 2015 the City increased the septic disposal rates to reflect the increased cost of operating wastewater treatment facilities.

This is a reminder to residents that as per Bylaw 2015-216 (a copy is available for review on the City’s website) we are now in the second year of the planned increase to septic disposal rates.

The initial By-Law was also amended in 2015 to allow for acceptance of hauled septage from septic and holding tanks outside of the City boundaries with discharge at the Lindsay Water Pollution Control Plant.

Septic and Holding Tank Waste for residents outside of the City will be charged an Administration fee of $7.00 per tonne plus the Standard Septage Waste rate. Residents from outside the municipality are required to register their holding tank and obtain a “septage generator number” with a one time fee currently set at $50.00.

The septic and holding tank disposal rates from By-Law 2015-216 are as follows:
