The District of Logan Lake implemented an Automated Garbage Collection system in 2009 that has completely changed the face of solid waste services. Gone are the days of back breaking manual collection where workers were exposed daily to the hazards that come with a hands on service. The automated system picks up the garbage containers; has reduced the risk of injury to workers; and reduced the collection time substantially.
Bear Education: Living in Wildlife Country
How we manage our living space has a great deal of influence on the amount of human-wildlife conflict we experience. While wildlife may need to pass through our living space, if we provide food, water, shelter and space, they may linger too long near our homes and this can lead to undesirable consequences both for us and the animals.
Please contact the District if you would like to discuss how you can protect your home from wildlife further. More information is available at https://wildsafebc.com/
Our Bylaw and Animal Enforcement Officer does regular patrols for bear attractants and will enforce bylaw contraventions. This may include warnings, municipal tickets, or further investigative action by the BC Conservation Officer Service.
Purchasing New Garbage Cans
|Bear Proof Garbage Can||$200|
|New Garbage Can||$100|
Residents of single family dwellings are no longer required to provide their own solid waste containers. The District issues each residence one durable 250 liter (65 US Gallon) molded plastic container, with the option of a second container on written request, for an additional annual fee of $200. Multi-family dwellings are provided with 1,135 liter (300 US Gallon) containers. Each container remains the property of the District; is marked with an identification number; with replacement costs borne by the property owner(s), should the container be lost or damaged through negligence. In addition, bear resistant hardware can be purchased and installed from the District office for a fee of $100.00. If you have any questions regarding the Automated Garbage Collection system, please contact the District office at 250-523-6225 or via email.
