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.
