The Capital Regional District has awarded a contract to D.L. Bins Ltd. for hauling and processing kitchen scraps.
The contract runs from March 1, 2016 to Feb. 28, 2018, at a rate for 2016 of $114.50/tonne, which results in an estimated annual savings of approximately $250,000 over the previous kitchen scraps contract.
Annual contract costs are projected to be up to $1,145,000 per year with tipping fee revenue expected to cover 96 per cent of the hauling and processing costs.
Enviro-Smart Organics in Delta and Fisher Road Recycling in Cobble Hill as the main processing subcontractors.
A landfill ban on kitchen scraps was implemented in the region last January.
