DURING THE WINTER FISHING SEASON, an increase in recreational vehicles and people on the frozen lakes is resulting in an increase in the leftovers of human activity. 

Human waste does not belong on the ice, under the ice or along our shorelines.  

What can I do?

  • Human waste must be bagged, collected separately from household trash, and disposed of in designated receptacles at assigned locations on shore.
  • A licensed hauler will transport this waste to an approved site for burial or incineration. 
  • Do not contaminate public or private trash bins with fish guts or human waste. 
  • Do not put household trash in clearly marked human waste receptacles. 
  • If you have access to a winter dump station, please use it with caution.
  • Your cooperation is expected and greatly appreciated in order to keep our area vibrant and our lakes clean.
