Permits for Pay-As-You-Throw due to expire

The Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) program was implemented in June 2011. Under PAYT, residential transfer station permits are issued for a period of five years. Permits issued in 2011 are going to expire this year. Public Works expects over 4,000 permits are due to expire by year end. Residents are encouraged to verify their expiration date before their next visit to the Transfer Station as an expired permit will not allow access to the Transfer Station.

Permit renewals are $40 for five years when renewed online, or $50 for five years when renewed in person at the Public Works office in City Hall.
