Regional Landfill, Transfer Station and Salvage Centre

Household recycling, composting and garbage collection is managed through the Town's 3 Stream Waste Collection program.  However, on occasion, residents may have waste that will not fit into, or is not appropriate for, these bins.  

Foothills Regional Landfill

The Foothills Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre (LRRC) is located near Okotoks, and accepts all types of household waste including electronic waste, construction waste, compost, recycling and household hazardous waste.  

Regular hours for the Landfill are Monday - Saturday, 8:30am - 4:30pm.  Closed Sundays and statutory holidays.  Phone: 403-938-5224

Salvage Centre

The LRRC is also home to the Foothills Salvage and Recycling Society (FSRS) which operates a Salvage Centre which accepts donations of reusable household and sporting goods items including clothing which are in good condition. 

The FSRS is a registered not-for-profit society dedicated to keeping usable and recyclable items out of the landfill, and makes donated items accessible for purchase at an affordable price through their facility.  

The Salvage Centre hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (closed on statutory holidays and on the first Wednesday of every month for maintenance).
