Waste Management in the South Whiteshell

Posted on: July 3, 2019  |  

The Department of Sustainable Development has been working on an initiative to reduce the costs and hours associated with the collection and hauling of both garbage and recycling in the South.   There are plans to begin a slow  a reduction in “garbage cages” and pick up locations in the coming season, promoting park users to drop off solid waste at the existing highly accessible “depot” sites where mechanical pick up is possible.  Currently there are 7 of these existing changes to garbage and recycling in the Caddy, West Hawk, Star, Barren, and Falcon Lake.

July 2019 Update

Recently, park staff in the Falcon Lake area have been doing site preparation for future use in implementing this initiative.  Where garbage cages have been removed, it has been on a gradual basis over several years now involving aging cages requiring significant maintenance or repair.  Cages have also been removed from locations where there were safety concerns, such as proximity to busy roadways, for both staff and the public. At Brereton Lake, work is ongoing to establish a solid waste collection depot site.

Due to the response  the Parks and Protected Spaces Branch are receiving from the WCA and cottagers generally, no further work will go into this initiative. The process is now on hold and will remain so until there has been more time for direct communication and engagement with the WCA and other affected groups regarding overall planning and implementation of the program. As a result, there will be no further work to implement this initiative until after the Parks and Protected Spaces Branch has had some meaningful discussion with the cottagers.
