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.

Caddy Air Field – Manitoba Historical SocietyDuring the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Canadian federal government employed able-bodied, unemployed men to build public infrastructure. In return for their labour, each man was provided with food, shelter, and 20 cents per day. In Manitoba, three construction gangs worked in the Whiteshell Forest Reserve (today’s Whiteshell Provincial Park) to build roads to enable the development of tourism in this part of the province. Between Fall 1933 and Spring 1934, one hundred men from the Caddy Lake Relief Camp, under the supervision of Col. Logie Armstrong from the Department of National Defense, built an emergency airfield at this site about 1.5 miles west of the Ontario border. ... See MoreSee Less
