Discount Garbage Bins
Effective October 1, 2021 any RM of Invergordon ratepayer may call Greenland Waste to order a 3-yard Garbage bin for their residence at the RM’s discounted rate of $30.00/month for pickup every 4th week. This rate will reduce to $20.00/month once their landfill site is operational (expected 2024-2025). Rate for pickup every 8th week is $20.00/month and $15.00/month once operational.
Ratepayers with existing Greenland bins in their yards may also call and request the discounted rate. This is not a mandatory bin. It is simply available to those who need or want one for their yard, and must be paid for by the ratepayer.
