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

Recyclable Materials

In order to minimize costs and recycle as much as possible, recycling pickup is not the same in all municipalities.  Please take a look at what you can place in your curbside recycling for pickup, and keep handy for future reference. 

The Town has recently sourced a company to recycle polystyrene (Styrofoam).  Polystyrene can be taken to the landfill site during regular hours of operation and there is no charge for disposal.  The Town can accept white, molded pieces of polystyrene only, which is the "cushion" packaging that is normally used to package electronics and housewares, and all pieces must be larger than one (1) inch.  Residents can recycle the acceptable material in clear plastic bags, which are available at the landfill site.  The Town cannot accept food storage containers, white foam packaging used for food contact (ex. meat trays, coffee cups, etc), packaging "peanuts", "clamshells" or "popcorn", or anything smaller than one (1) inch.

The Town accepts batteries to recycle, ensuring that this hazardous material is not placed in the landfill. The Town collects select batteries at the landfill, Town Hall and the Sauble Beach Community Centre.  The approved batteries include single-use batteries (AAAs, AAs, Cs, Ds, and 9-volts), lithium batteries, button cell batteries, and corroded or leaking batteries (which must be placed in a plastic bag before placing in the collection container).
