Septage User Fees Stink

Proposed user fees to dump septage at the Whynott's Settlement Waste site stink according to some Lunenburg Town Councillors. The town is one of four partners that manage the site but feel they're being treated unfairly. A new lagoon is set to open at the waste site next January and while Lunenburg will be sharing in the capital cost it will be charged a user fee of 22 dollars per ton for dumping septic waste. That could mean an additional 80 thousand dollars expense for the Town. Mayor Laurence Mawhinney says Council will be looking at what other options are available to the Town including shipping the waste to another facility.
