Waste services are governed by a Cost Recovery Policy, meaning all programs and services must be funded by user fees, rather than general taxes. Landfill Closure Liability (money that must be set aside for future closure of the landfill) must be recognized every year and recovered through tipping fees.
The landfill only has roughly 34.5 years of life remaining, and the costs to close it and site a new one are significant! Extending the landfill life extends the length of time over which the City can recognize this liability, reducing the annual cost to users.
We estimate that by reaching 50% diversion by 2030 we can extend the life of the landfill by ten years!
