Garbage Pick-Up Update

Effective August 1, 2019, all domestic garbage will need to be placed  into a securely lidded garbage container which is scavenger and wind proof.  This may be a garbage pail or barrel or a wooden or similar box or bin but secured in such a way that it cannot be upset.  The garbage will have to be placed in a plastic bag that is tied and does not weigh more than 30 pounds and is placed into the garbage contained so that our staff are able to lift it from the container.  

We regret to advise that in an attempt to keep the village refuse free, bylaw infractions will be issued to residents who don’t meet these guidelines. 

Village staff will be returning to front street and back alley pickup.

Slope Stability and Erosion Control Review and Best Practices Guide for Hunts Cove Hill

In October of 2017, Clifton Associates Ltd. was retained by the Resort Village of Cochin to assess Hunts Cove Hill and the surrounding area with respect to slope stability and erosion. The intent of this project was to: 

  • Identify and assess areas of concern with respect to landslide and erosion risk, 
  • Provide recommendations for mitigation and/or remediation for identified areas of concern, and
  • Provide a slope stability and erosion best practices development guide, to assist the Client in developing policies and procedures to minimize slope stability and erosion risk for new developments, and modifications to existing properties.

Beach Cleaning, Leaves, Trees, and Branches

Residents are asked to remove all items that impede efficient cleaning of the beach areas throughout the year. Beach cleaning will take place on Tuesday and Thursday. 

In 2019 there will be two leaf, trees, and branches pickups:  after the May long weekend and after the September long weekend.  These pickups will be for leaves bagged in clear plastic bags only and do not include tree and bush trimmings: leaves only.  Residents will have the responsibility of taking leaves not in clear plastic bags and tree and bush trimmings to the Village’s landfill which is open Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.  Residents should not allow this type of refuse to build up .

A lighthouse in Saskatchewan?!  The only lighthouse in Saskatchewan is at the north end of the village of Cochin.  The Cochin Lighthouse was built in 1988 on the top of Pirot Hill. From here visitors have a spectacular view of both Jackfish and Murray Lakes. The lighthouse is 11.5 meters tall (38 ft). There are 153 steps to the top. The rotating beacon can be seen for miles.
