It’s going to cost more this year for garbage pick-up in Abbotsford.

Council has accepted a staff recommendation to raise solid waste user fees. Residents living in weekly collection areas will see their fees rise from the current rate of $205 a year to $215.

Bi-weekly collection areas will go from $170 to $175, while recycling pick-up jumps from $12 to $13. These increases had already been approved as part of the 2011 financial plan.

Staff recommended the fee adjustment to cover increased operational costs.
