Waste Management and Recycling

My Waste

Please click on the above

waste/recycling in your
area.

The District of Logan Lake implemented an Automated Garbage Collection system in 2009 that has completely changed the face of solid waste services.  Gone are the days of back breaking manual collection where workers were exposed daily to the hazards that come with a hands on service.  The automated system picks up the garbage containers; has reduced the risk of injury to workers; and reduced the collection time substantially.

Under this system, residents of single family dwellings are no longer required to provide their own solid waste containers.  The District issues each residence one durable 250 liter (65 US Gallon) molded plastic container, with the option of a second container on written request, for an additional annual fee.  Multi-family dwellings are provided with 1,135 liter (300 US Gallon) containers.  Each container remains the property of the District; is marked with an identification number; with replacement costs borne by the property owner(s), should the container be lost or damaged through negligence.  In addition, bear resistant hardware can be purchased and installed from the District office for a fee of $100.00.  If you have any questions regarding the Automated Garbage Collection system, please contact the Public Works Yard at P: 250-523-2755 C: 250-318-7655 or the District office at 250-523-6225 or via email This email address is being protected from spambots.
