Solid Waste Disposal

Solid waste is collected once per week for residential and twice per week for commercial.  After the purchase of a new garbage lift system and garbage truck the Village of Burns Lake implemented a new bylaw requiring all residents and businesses to utilize the new bins compatible with the new truck.  This will speed up the collection process and ensure the health and safety of the Public Works employees during this process.  The new cans are extremely durable and require a one time purchase from the Village of Burns Lake unless they are damaged in some way.  Some may be repaired, others may need to be replaced.

Garbage Collection

Residential: Every Wednesday – be sure to have your garbage can at the curb by 7:00am

Commercial: Tuesday and Friday

Waste Collection Bylaw No 938 2013
