Garbage Pickup – Emma/Christopher/Anglin Lake

The District of Lakeland contracts their refuse collection to a private contractor. Some important things to remember:

  • Waste is collected at 7:00am on Mondays, including holidays. Bins must be off the road and put away in your yard before 9:00am of Sundays, and after 9:00am on Tuesdays.
  • Due to wildlife concerns, especially bears, we ask that ratepayers store their waste indoors, in a locked shed, or take it to the numerous bear-proof bins throughout the District.
  • If a bin left on the road interferes with roadwork and snow removal, or waste is scattered in your yard or on the road, you may face fines outlined in the bylaw.
  • Click here to see the full location list for bear-proof waste bins.
  • Your bin cannot contain more than 10% recyclable materials. Recycle material must be cleaned and placed in the bearproof recycle bins, or taken to the transfer station or Prince Albert Landfill.
  • The District faces fines from Prince Albert Landfill if we deliver contaminated recycling or waste with more than 10% recycling. Our fines are paid out of ratepayer taxes, so it is our ratepayer’s responsibility to separate their waste.
  • We do not have the capacity at the transfer station to take construction waste, especially shingles. You will have to transport such waste to Prince Albert Landfill.
  • If you are unfamiliar with waste restrictions required by Public Health, the bylaw outlines how to dispose of things like Medical Sharps, Liquid Wastes, Electronics, Hot Ashes, Appliances, etc.
  • See our Transfer Station page to see what is permitted at Emma Lake Transfer Station.
