Bin Site Transition Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Since 2019, the District has been working with communities to replace unlicensed dumpsters with long-term sustainable waste services.

The current unsupervised bins pose a threat to Muskoka's environment and contribute to illegal dumping. The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) has directed the District to remove all 80+ dumpster bins by 2023. The District has committed to working with each community to put convenient and environmentally sustainable waste services in place before bins are removed.


We continue to monitor the COVID-19 emergency and follow recommendations from Public Health. If you currently have curbside collection or use a licensed transfer station, nothing has changed. Please monitor muskokarecycles.ca for any program or curbside impacts.



Why are bin sites being removed?

Bin sites are not licensed and not compliant with the Environmental Protection Act.
They pose risks to the environment and human health, especially when waste is not disposed of properly in and around bin sites. Many bin sites are located very close to our lakes and rivers and they pose a high risk of contamination.


May 2022 – Update

We are pleased to announce Lakeside Waste Collection will begin for water access residents starting Sunday, May 22, 2022.

A summary of the results of the survey:

  • Survey sent to 87 residents.

What does this mean?

    The District of Muskoka is seeking your input as we transition the bin sites. 

    The purpose of initiating an Alternate Servicing Study is to inform the Bin Site Transition Plan by assessing waste collection alternatives for the District’s communities currently served by 88 existing unlicensed bin sites. The Study will be used to identify alternate waste collection services that are compliant with the Environmental Protection Act, 1990 (EPA), in keeping with the District’s Strategic Priorities and future Waste Management Strategy, and reflects the unique waste collection service needs of each 'bin site community'.

    The Terms of Reference outlines the goals, objectives and key actions that will guide the work of the Bin Site Transition Plan from 2020-2023. Please give us your feedback.
