Garbage Disposal Fees

In Burnaby, garbage is collected by the City, but is disposed of at a regional disposal facility (i.e. landfill or waste-to-energy) that is owned and operated by our regional government, Metro Vancouver. The cost to dispose of garbage (i.e. tipping fees) are set by Metro Vancouver; the City does not have control over these charges.
