For a number of years, many Solid Waste Management Services ratepayers have received a rebate or credit on each utility bill, funded from the property tax base. The rebate for the extra-large garbage bin was removed in 2017. During the 2019 budget process, City Council approved a three-year plan to phase out the rest of the garbage bin rebates. This included the large garbage bin rebate and bag-only rebate being phased out entirely in 2019, the medium garbage bin rebate over 2019 and 2020 and the small garbage bin rebate over 2019, 2020 and 2021. The phasing out of the rebates support Solid Waste Management Services’ transition to a self-sufficient and sustainable utility where operating expenses are fully covered by rate revenues.
