Automated Pick-Up

The Summer Village of Itaska Beach uses an automated garbage pick-up system. Each lot with a cabin will be supplied with one 240 L garbage bin. Residents are responsible for replacing lot or stolen carts ($100 cost). On the garbage schedule, Itaska Beach falls within the North Shore category. ALL garbage must be inside the can.  Any extra bags outside of the can will NOT be picked up.  

AutomatedGarbage 2021 Garbage Collection Schedule

If your garbage can gets damaged (e.g. a broken wheel), please contact our office at (780) 312-0928, or email to  It can take 2-3 weeks, as the contractor will coordinate a number of repairs at the same time. 


There will be two leaf pickups each year - in the spring and fall. This is to assist in getting yards cleaned up. The leaves must be placed in a clear bag, and placed at the end of your road.

Any material other than leaves, or not in a clear bag will not be picked up and will be your responsibility to dispose of.

 Big Bins

There will be one spring major clean-up. On the Saturday of the May long week-end, the Summer Village will supply a large bin, where residents may put their garbage.

The bin will be there from ~ 8am - 3pm. It is for residents use only, so you must bring some form of i.d. (driver's license if you are a listed owner on title, or a copy of last year's tax notice).

ALLOWED - but there will be a surcharge:
Mattress: Mattresses have a surcharge of $30/mattress as they are a prohibited item at landfills. We can take them, but they have to be shipped to a mattress recycler as they cannot go to a landfill.
