REGIONAL DiSTRICT 0F CENTRAL OKANAGAN Board Agenda December 14, 2009
Agenda No: 6.15

TO: Regional Board
FROM: Peter Rotheisler
Waste Reduction Supervisor
DATE: December 14, 2009

Regional Board Report

SUBJECT: Rate increase for users of the North Westside and Traders Cove Transfer Stations.

RECOMMENDATION:

THAT the Regional Board receive, for information, the Report from the Waste Reduction Supervisor dated December 14th, 2009 regarding increasing user fees for the North Westside and Traders Cove Transfer Stations;

AND THAT staff report back to the Regional Board on the proposed user fee increases prior to final 2010 budget deliberations;

AND FURTHER THAT staff consult with users of the North Westside and Traders Transfer Stations to explain the need for increased user fees and gauge interest from Traders Cove Transfer Station users about changing to the automated curbside collection system instead of transfer station service.

Rational:

Table 1 summarizes the projected operating expenses, projected number of users and projected user fee for 2010 as well as the current user fees for the North Westside and Traders Cove Transfer Stations.

Table 1

  Projected Operating
Expenses 2010
Projected Users
2010
Projected
2010 User Fee
Current User Fee
North Westside
Transfer Station
$110,881.56 848 $131 $40
Traders Cove
Transfer station
$44,586.16 249 $179 $52


Projected operating expenses will be finalized after reviewing total 2009 operating expenses.

Regional District residents with automated curbside collection service adjacent to Traders Cove are projected to have a garbage collection rate of $178.40/year for a higher level of service.

Background:

The current annual user fees for the North Westside Transfer Station and the Traders Cove Transfer Station are $40 and $52, respectively. Rates are less for North Westside Transfer Station users as a result of better economies of scale. The user fees are meant to cover all operating expenses associated with the transfer stations. These rates have remained unchanged for a minimum of seven years. However, over this seven year (????????MORE LIKE SINCE 2007) period the operating expenses associated with these transfer stations have increased by approximately 275% while the number of users has only increased by approximately 35%.

The primary reason for the increase in operating expenses is increased contractor rates associated with hauling, operating the transfer station, and equipment rental (Tables 2 and 3).

 

Table 2 A comparison of contractor rates for Traders Cove Transfer Station for 2004 and 2010.

 

2004

2010

Hauling Rate (per bin) $50-$60 $196-$218
Labour rate (per hour) $18.50 $28.50
Equipment rental (per month) $120 $357.50

 

Table 3 A comparison of contractor rates for North Westside Transfer Station for 2004 and 2009

  2004 2010
Hauling Rate (per bin) $240
(included bin rental)
$305
Labour rate (per month) $953 $2,630
Equipment rental (per month) $0 $357.50/month

This raise in labour rates has more than doubled... has your salary doubled?

Contracts have been renewed and amended multiple times over the last seven years for each transfer station. Each renewal and amendment resulted in an increased expense to operate.

Most recently the Regional Board approved hauling rate increases of between 20% and 30% for both transfer stations (April 21, 2009). This most recent hauling rate increase is associated with the diversion of commercial traffic from the Westside Landfill and the resultant longer haul to the Glenmore Landfill.

In addition, tipping fees have been added to the operating expense of each transfer station as a result of the Westside Landfill closing to commercial traffic in mid-2009. Prior to this, residents were not charged for tipping garbage at the Regional Landfill.

Highlights of the Special Regional Board Meeting– April 10, 2008

Recycling Depot & Transfer Stations Contract

The Regional Board has awarded a five year contract for the operation and collection of materials at recycling depots, waste transfer stations and the cleanup of illegal dump sites on Crown Land. Okanagan Environmental Waste Systems Limited was one of three qualified bids received for a combined services contract, which begins July 1st.

Over the five year term based on the volume of recyclables collected, the cost of operating four recycling depots will be $1,825,000 and will see improvements in the layout of each site and bin enclosures in order to improve traffic flow and parking. This cost could vary depending whether the volumes of materials collected are higher or lower than in 2007. The cost of operating the Trader’s Cove and North Westside transfer stations will be $525,000 and takes into account higher fuel and labour costs since the last contract was awarded five years ago. The illegal dumping site cleanup cost remains at approximately $17,000 per year and the contractor will provide improved equipment to access remote locations on Crown Land.

2003 = 632 properties x $40 utility bill + $??? property tax = $
2004 = 642 properties x $40 utility bill + $39.67 property tax = $51,148
2005 = 655 properties x $40 utility bill + $39.11 property tax = $51,817
2006 = 707 properties x $40 utility bill + $38.56 property tax = $55,542
2007 = 737 properties x $40 utility bill + $41.43 property tax = $60,014
2008 = 761 properties x $40 utility bill + $51.95 property tax = $69,974
