Current Fees



Congratulations goes out to Atkinson Construction Ltd. from Parkland County in the awarding of the contract to build the addition to the Regional Recycle Centre located at the landfill.  This addition will allow for more storage as well ability to receive large loads of recycle materials, such as cardboard, in a clean environment.  In addition to this we will have a 40 ft X 40 ft area for handling plastics.  We do and will continue to receive all Class 1 to 7 plastics.  The only one we currently can not take is film, and this has to do with the proper equipment to handle it, it has to be handled differently than hard plastics.

We also will be looking at options for agriculture plastics once this is up and running.  Stay tuned.
