Important Garbage Information

Hello everyone. As you already know there are major changes in how garbage is 
handled in the Park. Later this week, four large Loraas bins will be located in the Park for
Cottage Owners use. There will be no more door-to-door pickup by Park staff.

The big bins will be for household garbage only. We ask for your co-operation by not putting 
furniture, yard wastes, construction materials, etc. into the bins. These bins will be in place 
until the end of the year.  After that, you will be responsible for getting rid of your own garbage.

We worked with the Park to try and find locations that would be as handy
as possible to your cottage. The following locations have be chosen:
   - Eastbank, on the entrance road into Eastbank
   - Moosewoods, on Shady Lane near the south entrance to Moosewoods
   - Navy and Park, at the boat launch
   - Park and Lakeside, at the north beach

These could change if problems occur with any location. Remember, this
is only until the end of the year.

If you would like to have an individual cart similar to those used in the city,
they can be provided by Loraas Disposal under a contract with you. If you
chose this method and register with them this week, you will be part of a
group bin delivery at no cost. Please see the attached information from

This is a big change, but if we all work together it will work well.
