Ticket Errors and Disputes from Account Customers

Before Receiving Invoice – this is the best option to expedite the review process and minimize errors on invoices

Account customers are encouraged to review the tickets received by their drivers or haulers on a daily or weekly basis, to identify and report any errors before receiving the monthly invoice.

To report errors including incorrect charges, inaccurate truck numbers or weights, or duplicate tickets, email weighscalesystem@metrovancouver.org.

For questions regarding a disposal ban surcharge, email disposal.bans@metrovancouver.org.

Solid Waste Operations will review the information. If required, staff will edit the ticket, or send a revised ticket.

After Receiving Invoice

To report an error on your monthly invoice, or to dispute a surcharge, use the Weigh Scale System Dispute Form below. Specify the facility, ticket number, and describe your concern.

In accordance with Schedule F in the Tipping Fee Bylaw, please pay the invoice in full by the due date. Invoice disputes will be accepted and reviewed even after an invoice is paid in full.

Solid Waste Operations will process a credit voucher or provide a cheque refund, depending on the circumstances, to the account customer for any confirmed ticket errors or rescinded disposal ban surcharges.

Email the completed Dispute Form to weighscalesystem@metrovancouver.org
