Crowsnest - Pincher Creek Landfill receives provincial award of excellence

(ad)


The Crowsnest/Pincher Creek Landfill has received the Alberta Recycling Collection Site Award of Excellence. We won this award in the 5,000 – 25,000 Population base category. Since 2008 Alberta Recycling has been recognizing municipal sites registered with the recycling programs that provide residents with Environmentally safe, convenient and accessible areas to recycle their end-of-life Electronics, paint, and tires.






This summer we were visited by an inspector from Alberta Recycling. He was very impressed with our new Eco Recycling Building and the assorted bins and areas that we now have for drop off recycling.



We had no idea that we would win the Award of Excellence because there are hundreds of sites across Alberta with the same population. It was so rewarding to have our effort recognized by our peers. So with the excitement of this award we are now trying to possibly start a small composting facility here at the landfill in the spring, we will keep everyone posted on this project.

We also encourage everyone to please use our Eco Recycling Building reuse center if you have gently used household items.

With all these changes we have had to implement a sorting policy asking all residents and companies that use our landfill to please sort their waste. Electronics, Paint, Tires, Cardboard, Batteries, Propane Bottles, Used Oil and Filters, Fluorescent Light Bulbs, Wood, Metal, Appliances, Concrete and Asphalt, etc.

Crowsnest/Pincher Creek Landfill and Alberta Environment want us to reduce the amount of waste that now goes into our municipal solid waste. We will now be implementing a sorting levy fee. So please sort your loads or there could be an Extra levy from $100.00 - $300.00 per load if we have to rearrange waste to the proper place. Thank you to everyone who is working with us to help keep our beautiful region a better place to leave for future generations.
