Therefore, the rate has been adjusted to be more consistent with the cost of managing these loads, and the increases are not expected to cause additional illegal dumping.</p></div>|#2873430e-0486-4243-a1ac-91845421275c;L0|#02873430e-0486-4243-a1ac-91845421275c|Issue 7;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClassA6BB426D0EE54E07AA979A24632EBBEC"><p>To better reflect the cost of managing waste, and encourage commercial haulers to use regional facilities, as of April 6, 2015, new tipping fees will be introduced based on load sizes. </p></div>
