Fall Yard Waste Disposal

Leaf and yard waste collection around the Lake is bi-weekly starting the week of October 8.  Leaves and yard waste can be taken to the Transfer Station or may be left at the curb in compostable bags, boxes or open ended rigid containers.  More information about this and your pick-up dates please see This email address is being protected from spambots.

Important Note:  The burning of leaves is no longer allowed in Simcoe County.  The County is also now providing "double up" days only at Christmas - not Thanksgiving as in previous years.

Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry Fisheries Monitoring 2018

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) science crews completed their collection of information on fish species, taking water samples and checking for invasive species in the lake in June of 2018.  It will take the Ministry several months to compile the information collected from the lakes and prepare a report, which will likely be available around April 2019.  Past reports can be found at Fish ONLINE.

Eurasian Watermilfoil Control Efforts Continue

The Farlain Lake Community Association continues to work hard on strategies to control the invasive aquatic plant, Eurasian Watermilfoil.  We sincerely appreciate all the support we have received from Tiny Township, the SSAE, those who have donated funds through our fund-raising campaign, and to the very hard-working core of volunteers who had dedicated so much time and effort to our effort to control this very aggressive aquatic plant. Further information about the plant and our efforts can be found on this site under Stewardship/Eurasian Watermilfoil Dealing with the Threat.
