Waste Bin Removal

04 May 2022 11:38 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

For the record, the KLRA has spent countless hours in communication with the District over the past 2.5 years to delay the removal of the bins and to find a better solution to our waste collection options for water access cottagers.

Sadly, even with the real threat of losing them, the bins continued to be abused with illegal dumping. No matter who the culprits are, this has ruined it for the rest of our community. We feel the collective pain of the loss of the bins that is being discussed on our website and social media. Many of our board members are water access cottagers who understand the major, logistical challenge this will create this summer.

HOWEVER, please know that your Board has not given up finding the best solution possible. We cannot stop what has been mandated by the Ministry of the Environment but we can continue to let our concerns be known to our local and provincial representatives. We will be closely monitoring the Sunday drop off day and will provide regular feedback to the District.

We encourage all those affected to contact the District directly. In addition, you can comment on the KLRA's Facebook, Twitter or website pages which will provide an on-line dialogue over the course of the next few months.

We will have a representative from the District at our annual AGM planned for Sat June 25th 10-12pm at the Gravenhurst Opera House. This will provide an excellent forum for our members to speak their minds and to be heard.
