HU considers waste surcharges Laura Bernero, June 26, 2013 firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to better compensate for the treatment of all types of waste entering the Hastings Pollution Control Facility, the Board of Public Works is looking to put a surcharge on highly-concentrated sewage deliveries received at the plant.
The Hastings Utilities board tabled a discussion Wednesday concerning the potential rate increases and how the utilities staff is handling sewage deliveries that are stronger or harder to process than normal domestic waste drop-offs.
"If a non-industrial customer comes to deliver and they meet the strength levels of more of an industrial delivery, they will be charged for it. We just want to make sure we are getting compensated for the processing of those kinds of deliveries," HU manager Marve Schultes said after the meeting.
