Garbage collection schedule changes for Lake Country residents

information will give the exact date of their next scheduled waste and recycling collection day.

Adjustments are being made to the curbside collection schedule in Lake Country.

Starting Jan. 14, some residents in will see a change to their collection day while others will see a change to their recycling week.

“As a result of the changes, residents will benefit from multiple collection days throughout the week instead of the current Monday collection only,” said Randy Cole, with OK Environmental Waste Systems.

“All residents affected by the change will be notified on their current collection day a week to two weeks prior to a change by either a door-knocker attached to their front door or an information packet attached to their cart.”

The information provided will give the exact date of their next scheduled waste and recycling collection day.

OK Environmental will pick up recycling two weeks in a row in the areas affected by a recycling week change.

“After the adjustment your collection will return to the every other week schedule,” said Cole.

For information on schedule changes, go to or call 250-868-3211.
