Fall Round Up!

The Foothills Regional Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre (LRRC) has been organizing household hazardous waste (HHW) and electronic waste roundups twice per year, at the MD of Foothills’ transfer stations. The transfer stations are located in Priddis and between Black Diamond and Turner Valley and the roundups have been a success. See our website for transfer station addresses here: Hours

The last roundup on Sept. 24th 2016 received the following materials from residents, taken at no charge:

8 – 1m3 bins filled with used paint cans

8 – 205 L drums of used oil

15 – 205 L drums of various HHW containers

7 car batteries

1 – 205 L drum of used antifreeze

19 propane tanks

And numerous fluorescent bulbs

Thanks to all the residents that participated in the roundup and are helping keep hazardous waste out of the landfill and the environment. The LRRC accepts these materials year round for customers, though some materials are surcharged. See our website for pricing details here: HHW

The next free roundup at the MD transfer stations will be in the spring. Dates will be advertised on our facebook page and on twitter. Follow us and keep up the good work!
