The Summer Village 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, Silver Beach falls within the North Shore category.
Summer (May - Oct) Weekly on Mondays
Winter (Oct – May) Bi-Weekly on Mondays
ALL garbage must be inside the can. Any extra bags outside of the can will NOT be picked up.
If your garbage can gets damaged (i.e. a broken wheel), please contact GFL Environmental Inc. at: (780) 444-8805 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will get it scheduled for repair. They will need your name, phone number and house number. It usually takes about 2-3 weeks, as their maintenance person will coordinate a number of repairs at the same time.
There will be one spring major clean-up. On 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 ~ Friday afternoon to Monday morning. It is for residents use only.
