FENLAND District Council has released the fees and charges it could be putting in place for its services in the next financial year.
An outline of the new charges states that increases will raise an additional £107,000. A final figure based on the current and future use of the facilities.
A general three per cent increase has been suggested in the majority of the council's services, with leisure centres and bulky household waste collection among the exceptions.
To have a fridge/freezer taken away is going up by 50 per cent, from £10 to £15 and to take away two items of household waste is going up from £15 to £20. Free bulky household waste collections for those who fall under hardship criteria is under review to be withdrawn.
And replacement green, blue or brown wheelie bins could cost £20.45, with an added £28.21 charge for delivery.
The cost of a basic search in land charges will rise by £30, from £150 to £180, and annual membership of the leisure centres will increase from £369 to £385.
