Public Works Garbage



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. If you believe you need more than one garbage bin, you can rent a second bin for $18 dollars a month, payable annually.  
2024 Garbage 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. 

Be sure to adhere to the following guidelines:

a.              Carts must be:
                  i.        Placed along the edge of the road way with wheels in the gutter
                  ii.         Not overloaded so as to prevent the lid from closing
                   iii.      Placed with a minimum of 4 feet clearance on all sides and above the cart from any obstacle including additional bags, parked vehicles, fences, other carts, etc and are placed so as to allow un-impeded access of the collection grabber directly from the side of the collection truck out to the cart
b.              Only waste contained within the respective automated 65 gallon cart will be collected.  Carts filled with inappropriate material will not be collected, such as hazardous waste, propane cylinders, gas, batteries, full aerosol cans and paint.

Snow Removal

Snow removal is done by a contractor after major snowfalls as necessary.  Please contact the office if the road needs to be plowed.

Residents are reminded snow from private driveways is not cleared by the Summer Village.  Snow from private driveways must be stored on your property.  Do not push the snow onto municipal property, including ditches.    

Snow ridges will occur at the driveway entrance when the Summer Village snow plough goes through.  Property owners will be required to clear their driveway (the approach) which may include utilizing personal snow removal equipment, seeking assistance from family, friends or neighbours; or contracting a private third-party company to perform the service.


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.


Road Bans

Road bans are weight restrictions that reduce the maximum weight allowed on our roads. Seasonal road bans are applied each spring to protect road infrastructure. These seasonal bans are lifted in late May or early June, depending on weather conditions. 

~ April - early June,  there is a 50% road ban in Itaska Beach, as well as surrounding area.  The remainder of the year the road is at 75%.  

For road permits, please contact Roadata Services Ltd.
