Non-profit groups could have one less bill to flip next year.
The City of Fort Saskatchewan council has decided to look into a policy that would allow non-profit groups to use the transfer station free of charge.
Right now, only the food bank and Twice But Nice have been able to use the transfer station for free.
"What this proposed policy will do is set out some regulations to make it a fair playing field for everybody," said Fort Saskatchewan mayor Gale Katchur.
Council has asked to examine other areas of the policy including misuse of the privilege and a cap limit on disposal.
"This will be approved by the next council hopefully in the spring of 2018," added Katchur.
It's estimated the program would cost the city $6800 to $18,000 per year based on operating costs and lost revenue.
The city believes roughly 70 non-profit groups in the Fort would potentially use this program.
