Street Sweeping

Valley Power Sweep will be on site tomorrow, June 29, 2022, to sweep paved streets and laneways throughout residentials beginning at 7:00 am. Public parking Lot B and the Cultus Lake Park Plaza will also be included in the scope of work. Staff anticipate that this may take up to two days to complete.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the park office at [email protected] or phone 604-858-3334.

Reducing Bear Conflicts

An increased number of bear sightings have been reported throughout Cultus Lake Park and surrounding areas.

You can help reduce potential conflicts with bears by securing attractants and preventing bears from becoming food conditioned. In most calls to the Conservation Officer Services, garbage is identified as the primary attractant.

Residents are encouraged to report any strewn waste throughout public and residential areas to the Cultus Lake Park office, to help keep our community safe and secure. Reports can be made directly on the Cultus Lake Park app. Additionally, you can notify staff by emailing [email protected] or by calling Reception at 604-858-3334.

WildSafeBC highlights the following items and the most common attractants for bears and other wildlife:

Garbage
Pets and pet food
Barbeques
Bird feeders
Fruit trees
Berry bushes
Landscaping
Livestock, apiaries, and feed
Fish and smokehouses

Waste Collection Guidelines Reminder

Cultus Lake Park residents are reminded to set out containers for collection only between 12:00 pm on the day prior to pick up and 8:00 am on the day of collection (Monday).

Staff ask that containers are placed at the curb facing the road with the lids closed for ease of collection.

Valley Waste and Recycling will collect and dispose contents of:

– one green tote;

– one recycle tote; and

– up to 240L of refuse (two 120L garbage bags or two 120L garbage containers).

Additional green waste or recycling material not fully contained in the totes will not be collected, i.e., cardboard boxes, paper bags of green waste, etc. However, leaseholders are welcome to purchase “extra garbage bag” stickers from the Cultus Lake Park office for $1.50 to set out an additional 25kg of refuse. Stickers are valid for garbage only, not green waste or recycling.

For the benefit of the Community’s health and safety, when containers are not at the curb for collection, they must be stored safe and securely wholly on lease lots to avoid attracting animals. The link below to Fraser Valley Regional District’s Waste Wise brochure provides practical information on collection materials and their respective waste stream.

Waste Management Compliance

There have been multiple bear sightings recently within Cultus Lake Park and Sunnyside Campground.

This notice is to advise residents, campers, and commercial leaseholders to ensure that all waste receptacles are contained and that absolutely no waste is left out. If you have compost, please ensure that containers are secure to reduce odour attractants.

Bylaw Enforcement Officers will be patrolling all areas starting today to seek compliance as per Cultus Lake Park Property Maintenance Bylaw.

Warning tickets will be issued, and phone calls will be made if waste is left unsecured and/or located outside of the lease lot. Infraction tickets will be issued for any noncompliance on this matter.

Should you have any questions, please contact Rachel Litchfield, Corporate Services / Corporate Officer at [email protected].

Wildlife sightings can be reported directly to 1-877-952-7277.
