Refuse Rates set to rise by 2%. Will impact on budget for Local Authorities this year.

More from Isle of Man News

Increase will be passed on to local authorities

Ratepayers will likely see their bills increase next year due to a planned rise in gate fees at the Island’s energy from waste plant.

An increase of just under 2% (1.92) will come into effect from April next year.

It will see the cost of disposing of household waste rise to £93.70 per tonne, and commercial waste at £186.55 per tonne.

As dealing with waste makes up a significant proportion of local authority expenditure, changes in gate fees will impact rate-setting for the year ahead.

Increases are calculated via a formula agreed in a contract between the Department of Infrastructure and plant operator SUEZ.

Part of the rise is to cover the annual costs of maintaining the facility, including staffing, maintenance and insurance.

But increases also take into account the amount of waste delivered, and any income from the sale of electricity.

Good luck to two of the Kirk Michael residents running the New York Marathon today. Matt Callister and David Hodgson are just two of the Manx people chosen to run this year. There are another three and two of those from Peel, Orran Smith and Helen Taylor. Good luck to you all we will be waving the Manx flag as you come through the finish line.
