The Municipality of Trent Lakes has an ongoing commitment to provide our residents with environmentally responsible and cost effective solid waste management services.
Waste reduction and recycling support programs have been established at four transfer sites at key geographical locations to encourage sustainable waste management practices and enhance municipal waste diversion activities. Many of the programs are through partnership with the County of Peterborough and allow us to offer a diversity of waste reduction programs to our residents in compliance with the Ministry of Environment Certificates of Approval unique to each site.
Waste management efficiency and practices are regularly reviewed as the Municipality of Trent Lakes continues in its commitment to environmental protection and preservation.

Waste Transfer Sites and bear populations
All Waste Transfer Sites use bear-proof bins for household waste that could be an attractant to bears. Waste Transfer Sites will temporarily close if there is a black bear on the site during hours of operation. This is to protect public safety.
