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.  

 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 info@itaska.ca.  It can take 2-3 weeks, as the contractor will coordinate a number of repairs at the same time. 

 

Leaves

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.

 

Large Item Garbage Collection

Large Item Collection

 

There will be one large item collection each summer where residents may put their garbage out at the end of the driveway (the same place you would place your garbage bin.)

Some examples of ACCEPTABLE items for collection include:

  • stoves • washer and dryers • mattress and box spring • furniture • sinks • toilets • barbecues (no tanks) • lawnmower (all fluids drained) • rain barrels • snowblower (all fluids drained) • lawn furniture • wheelbarrow

Extra garbage that does not fit in your garbage can must be disposed of in an acceptable dump facility. Many residents have a blue bag for recycling which they take back with them to the city. If you have garbage that you need to take to a dump:

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.

 

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.
