Hazardous waste The Orange Drop program provides Ontario residents with a free, safe and easy way to dispose of household products that require special handling. Fully funded by industry, this network of convenient drop-off sites accepts five materials.

Survey results

We received 165 responses to our survey last year. 54%  were in favour of stocking the lake with walleye and we have given this information the the Ministry of Natural Resources. It is just one of the factors that will inform their decision. A Fishing derby was the most requested event with 35 people interested. The most frequent suggestion for the URLA was to address the issue of cut weeds being left to float out on the lake. 80% of respondents follow us on Facebook. Here is how to connect with us on social media
