Would have to charge a lot. And people wouldn't be willing to pay for it because dumping it in the forest is free (to them).


Considering that a lot of owners are willing to pay $200 for a "carwash" I'd say you could find a happy fee somewhere in there ...

So just for :cuss: and giggles let's just say they put an environmental fee on them. What will happen with the old ones or ones that Okanagan Forest Task Force pulls out of the bush?

A spot still needs to be set up to be able to do this properly. There is waist tanks and propane that need to be done and salvaged properly as well along with fuel.

It could all be done easy enough but not in a residential neighborhood that's for sure.

People might drag them out and recycle them. Much like what happens with cars/trucks now.

Were did this concern for "residential neighborhood" come from? Recycling activities/businesses have always been considered commercial (collection side) and/or industrial activities. City would only allow this type of business in areas zoned as such. This is why we have zoning and there's nothing new about this type of business.

Considering all the taxes that are paid by the owners over the lifetime of using their rec vehicle why should there be an additional charge to them.

Do we pay additional for our other vehicles? No, so why them?

Agreed. Environmental levies on tires, batteries, fuel, oil. I'm sure there are others.

It cost us over $2500.00 in taxes just on the purchase of our 5th wheel. Then figure in the taxes on everything we purchased to outfit it. We are taxed to death as it is.

Apparently you didn't read the whole thread.

The residential neighborhood concern came about, because one member suggested RV owners should be dismantling derelict units on their own, which naturally conjures up visions of multiple wrecks, in various states of being recycled, sitting in the owners driveway.

Main difference is that there are options to get rid of regular vehicles, whereas these RV's as evidenced not so much, thus they are creating a disposal problem.

sounds like a potential business opportunity for someone take them in sell things like fridges stoves hot water heaters to people fixing there own dismantle and recycle the rest probably even get subsidized through the taxpayer in some way for it as well :up:. biggest problem would be finding an affordable piece of property to do it on

No I read it. I simply gave the benefit of the doubt. Should know better with these forums - Chicken Little's everywhere. There are bylaws already in place to deal with this sort of thing. You're already not allowed to own a junkyard in a residential neighborhood.
