What is Metro Vancouver's Plan:

  1. Licensing - Require waste management companies to get a license to operate in Mertro Vancouver. This will allow them to get information about how much garbage they collect. (Licensing Bylaw)
  2. Waste Levy - Impose a new waste levy on all garbage disposed of in Metro Vancouver, REGARDLESS of where it is taken for final disposal. This will allow them to raise fees and leave you no choice but to pay. (Waste Generator Fee Bylaw)
  3. Increase the levy to fund an incinerator - They won't admit this in meetings. But they forgot that people listen to the radio. Once they have passed the new bylaws, they will have all the power they need to burn your garbage.
Stay tuned... There will be more information in the coming days about Metro Vancouver's plans for burning garbage.
