Paint Lake Provincial Park Waste Transfer Station


To all cabin owners:

As of June 6, 2018 The Paint Lake Cottage Owners Association will no longer be operating the transfer station.

We bid on the contact for another three year period which was verbally approved, only to be told this week, that due to Government cut backs we no longer had our bid at the agreed upon price.  This agreed upon price was only possible with the help of the Paint Lake Cottage Owners volunteering their time and resources.  With this in mind it is no longer feasible for the Paint Lake Cottage Owners Association to operate the transfer station at the new price, which would incur financial hardship to our association.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this please contact Linda Horner.

Current Hours are Sunday's from 10am - 4pm. 

Troy Steeves, President PLCOA
