Waste and Recycling

About Waste & Recycling

The Wheatland County Waste Transfer Site facilities are intended to provide a means for Wheatland Countyresidents to dispose of household solid waste. The waste transfer sites are a collection point for solid waste which is then transferred to a landfill or recycling facility. The sites are regulated by Alberta Environment, Drumheller Solid Waste Management Association, and the recyclers handling the end product.

Please call your local site attendant before loading large/heavy items, to be sure there is room at the Site.

Please remember: sites are for household residential (all garbage must be bagged) solid waste only. Construction demolition, industria,l or commercial waste generators must make their own arrangements.

Loads may be rejected if contaminated with unacceptable items. Recycling rules are mandated by Alberta Environment and our operators are there to ensure the rules are followed.

Farm Chemical Container recycling sites are located at Wheatland West, Hussar, and Standard. Residents are expected to make their own arrangements for disposal of sharps (needles) and pharmaceutical waste.

Plastic Baler Twine Recycling 
Wheatland County will be offering recycling bags free of charge to livestock producers for the collection of plastic baler twine to help reduce the amount of twine being burned (please don't burn twine).

These bags will fit into a 45 gallon barrel and, when full, can be dropped off at any Wheatland County Waste Transfer Site. Please note that bale net wrap is not currently accepted, but we are looking for opportunities to recycle this as well. We will update the website and Facebook page when a solution is found.

Recycling takes effort and cooperation from all parties involved, but the long term benefit it provides for our environment makes it a worthwhile endeavor for all of us.
