Septage Disposal Rate Increases on March 1, 2018

Many homes in the Regional District of Nanaimo have septic systems to treat wastewater. Generally, septic tanks are pumped out every 3 to 5 years. The RDN accepts and treats trucked septage at its wastewater treatment facilities. On March 1, 2018, the regular septage disposal rate will change from $0.23 per gallon to $0.24 per gallon. Every year after starting on January 1, the rate will increase by $0.01 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.
