The City of
Prince Albert has introduced a landfill pass system that will replace the
"Free Weeks at the Landfill" program.
landfill pass system has been created to provide access to the landfill for
residents throughout the year. The following criteria for the program has
been set out to regulate the use of the free passes and ensure that it is
coordinated in a way that is as straightforward as possible for both the City
of Prince Albert and the users of the pass system.
households in the City of Prince Albert that pay a sanitation fee as of January
1, 2017 of this year qualify for the program.
pass will cover the cost of a load under 150 kilograms or, if larger than 150
kilograms, will contribute $10.50 towards the total cost of the load.)
sanitation fee on your water utility/sanitation bill pays for
the operational expenses relating to the landfill.
Who does not qualify?
If you do
not pay a sanitation fee (commercial businesses, some apartments and many
condominiums) you do not qualify for this program. If you did not pay a
sanitation fee until after January 1, 2017, you will only qualify for the
program during the following quarter of the billing cycle. (E.G. Sign up after
Jan 01 –March 31 your Cycle starts in April and you will have 3 passes) The
City of Prince Albert has the right to suspend, ban from the Landfill or
discontinue the pass system to anyone that abuses or misuses this program.
How to redeem your free pass:
To redeem a
free pass, you will need to bring a recent (from within the last three
months and with Bar code) water utility/sanitation bill for an active
account and present it to the attendants at the landfill. They will
update the number of passes used on your visit.
PLEASE NOTE: Use
of the passes is not limited to the name that appears on the water
utility/sanitation account. The City will not mediate any disputes that
arise out of accesses that were utilized without the knowledge of the account
holder. Any water utility/sanitation bill for an active account is
considered a pass card and will be accepted without question (up to a maximum
of four uses).
What does your free pass get you?
allows you to bring in a load that weighs under 150 kilograms. If you
have a load that is over this weight, you may combine your passes and pay any
outstanding amounts. Please note that
no refunds will be
provided if the value of the number of passes utilized exceeds the dollar value
of the load taken to the landfill. If the load value is higher than the 4
passes, you must be prepared to pay the remaining balance in full.
You will be
permitted a maximum of four passes in one year. For the current year,
that will equate to a value of $42 (4 x $10.50). When you redeem your
pass with the landfill attendant, your number of passes applied to
the utility/sanitation account will be registered. (If you have a late Sanitation
account start you will only receive passes equal to the quarterly amount
remaining in the billing year. E.g. A move-in date in September would
allow one free pass credit towards your account.
passes from a prior year cannot be applied to the next calendar year.
What doesn't apply?
program only applies to Municipal solid waste (basic household garbage) and
does not apply to appliances containing Freon (fridges, deep freezes,
air conditioners, etc.), tires, Hazardous waste items or items containing
asbestos. Standard rates will apply for these items. Additional charges
