Spring and Summer waste and recycling reminders

May 25, 2017 - Upon the return of many seasonal residents, the City would like to remind everyone that clear bags are now required for curbside waste collection and at City landfill sites. As usual, recycling should be placed in open-mouthed bins for collection at the curb. Visit the Waste and Recycling section of www.city.kawarthalakes.on.ca or pick up the 2017 Recycling and Waste Collection calendar at your nearest Municipal Service Centre for more information.

Upcoming Events:
