Transfer Site during COVID-19

To help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Transfer Site is no longer accepting cash. Please pay with credit or debit instead. 

The Transfer Site is experiencing higher than average volumes resulting in longer wait times. Waste and Recycling Services asks people to be patient and respectful to staff when visiting the Transfer Site.

Transfer Site

When visiting the Transfer Site, please arrive with sufficient time to unload all material prior to closing.

The transfer site is a collection point for residential waste and construction material. Waste is transferred to landfill sites in Calgary. Sorting materials into the groups noted on this page helps us to recycle.

What's accepted
