Increased Waste Collection Fines

by

In the absence of a municipal system of fines, the default max. amount is only $5,000 (section 61 of the Provincial Offences Act.)

Jay Stanford (Director of Environmental Programs & Solid Waste) is proposing that London’s waste collection by-law (WM-12) be amended so that higher waste management fines can be imposed.01 That’s possible because section 429 of the Municipal Act 2001 allows municipalities to establish their own system of fines for offences.

The proposal would see a $10,000 max. fine for a first conviction for individuals and $25,000 max. for subsequent convictions; $50,000 max. for a first conviction for corporations and $100,000 max. for subsequent convictions.

If approved at Monday’s ETC meeting, the proposal will then proceed to the next City Council meeting on September 15, 2008.
