Leaving garbage at the gate when the dump is closed
There are cottagers who leave their bagged and other garbage at the gate to the dump during hours when the dump is not open. There are NO DUMPING signs at the gate but apparently not everyone has noticed them.
The bears are quick to get into the garbage and make a mess that staff members then have to clean up.
Staff at the dump have been directed to open bags and search through garbage that has been left at the gate. If there is evidence that identifies the source of the garbage, staff is to call the OPP and have them charge those so identified with either trespassing or littering. If the dump is closed please either store your garbage at the cottage or take it home. Dump hours are posted in the flyer. Don’t forget to take your dump pass!
Tuesday – Friday: 8:00 am to 4:30 pm
Saturday: 8:00 am to 2:00 pm
