The District has been working closely with our consulting team and the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) for approved waste collection service as we transition the bin (dumpster) sites. For more information on the Bin Site Transition Plan and alternate services planned for communities, please visit our project page.

With ongoing feedback from communities, we're pleased to announce the Summer 2022 Lakeside Waste Collection schedule for the Town of Gravenhurst and Township of Muskoka Lakes communities.

What can I bring?

This summer, crews will be present at a dedicated location for a scheduled period to collect garbage and recycling.


up to three (3) bags of household garbage - securely tied shut



unlimited recycling - dumped loose or in clear/transparent bags


To learn more, visit www.muskokarecycles.ca or download our Muskoka Recycles mobile app.

Large items (furniture, appliances) and other waste can be delivered to any District Waste Facility during normal operating hours. Many locations are open 7 days a week and open late on Sundays in the summer.

Not sure where it goes? Try our Waste Wizard - simply type in any item, and the Waste Wizard will tell you if it's recyclable, belongs in your garbage bag or needs special care.


Can garbage be dropped off outside of the event hours?

No, it can't. We are relying on the cooperation of our dedicated Muskoka community to respect this service and, at the same time, preserve our beautiful Muskoka environment – the reason we all choose to live here. Any abandoned garbage left on the ground before or after the event time is considered illegal dumping, these instances will be investigated and may result in the cancellation of the program.

Questions? We're here to help - reach out to our Lakeside Waste Collection team at waste@muskoka.on.ca or 705-645-6764.
