Garbage and Recycling Collection in the Chesley Lake Area

The Town of South Bruce Peninsula has a contractor that collects garbage and recycling from the Chesley Lake area.  The contract stipulates that curbside garbage and recycling is to be collected, on Wednesdays, from May 1 to November 30, in each calendar year and in accordance with the Waste Management By-Law.  The current Waste Management By-Law can be obtained from our website.     

In the off-season (December 1 through to April 30), the Town of South Bruce Peninsula places a bin at the end of Camp Road for the residents of Chesley Lake area to place their garbage.  This bin is placed for the residents, not for the campground.  The bin will be removed for the season once curbside garbage collection commences

During the off-season, residents from Chesley Lake area are able to take any and all recycling to the recycling depot located at the Amabel Landfill Site.
