Transfer Site

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

This site is DEPOSIT ONLY - NO SALVAGING

City of Airdrie recycling facilities (including the Airdrie Transfer Site) are subsidized through an environmental fee paid by Airdrie and Rocky View residents (additional fees apply at the Transfer Site).

The facility is for use by City of Airdrie and Rocky View County residents only.

Business use of our facilities is not permitted as they do not contribute to this funding and the facility is at capacity with residential quantities.
