Garbage Fees Could Increase Next Year: City Council

The cost to pick up your trash at the curb could increase next year, Toronto’s city council warned Monday.

The budget committee could raise garbage rates and they’re considering a three per cent hike. That’s on top of a nine per cent increase to water rates that will take affect in January.

It comes on the heels of Mayor Rob Ford’s promise to cut fees, including a recent council decision to scrap the Vehicle Registration Tax.
