RDN to boost septic disposal rates

Cost for septic system pump-out will rise March 1

  • Feb. 9, 2018 12:00 a.m.

The Regional District of Nanaimo, which accepts and treats trucked septage at its wastewater treatment facilities, will be increasing the rates March 1.

The regular septage disposal rate will change from 23 cents per gallon to 24 cents per gallon. Every year after, starting on Jan. 1, the rate will increase by one cent per gallon. The annual rate change translates to a $6 increase to pump out a 600-gallon tank and reflects the increasing cost of treating septage.

The holding tank (pump and haul) waste disposal rate is still $0.01 per gallon for approved customers.
