User Feedback Requested on Changes to Waste Disposal Options

Posted on: February 7, 2020  |  

The Department of Conservation and Climate has outlined a plan to achieve greater efficiencies with the collection of solid waste (garbage and recycling) in Whiteshell Provincial Park while maintaining convenient waste disposal options for cottagers and other park users.

This plan is intended to replace current, inefficient manual collection approaches while reducing operating expenditures for the department and, ultimately lead to reduced solid waste collection service fees for cottagers.

The plan involves replacing numerous individual garbage cage areas with conveniently situated, larger waste depots with garbage and recycling bins for mechanized pick-up and hauling. This plan will improve service and make access to waste and recycling sites safer for park users and staff.

Feedback is welcomed by all.
