Trash pickup changes

Starting Monday, some Lake Country residents 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.”

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.
