The Summer Village uses an automated garbage pick-up system. Each lot with a cabin will be supplied with one 240 L garbage bin. Residents are responsible for replacing lot or stolen carts ($100 cost). On the garbage schedule, Silver Beach falls within the North Shore category.
Summer (May - Oct) Weekly on Mondays
Winter (Oct – May) Bi-Weekly on Mondays
ALL garbage must be inside the can. Any extra bags outside of the can will NOT be picked up.
If your garbage can gets damaged (i.e. a broken wheel), please contact GFL Environmental Inc. at: (780) 444-8805 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will get it scheduled for repair. They will need your name, phone number and house number. It usually takes about 2-3 weeks, as their maintenance person will coordinate a number of repairs at the same time.

Road bans are weight restrictions that reduce the maximum weight allowed on our roads. Seasonal road bans are applied each spring to protect road infrastructure. These seasonal bans are lifted in late May or early June, depending on weather conditions.
~April - early June, there is a 50% road ban in Silver Beach, as well as surrounding areas. The remainder of the year the road is at 75%.
