Transfer Stations

The County operates nine (9) waste transfer stations, and is a member of the West Dried Meat Lake Landfill.  All waste from the transfer stations is hauled to the West Dried Meat Lake Landfill.  Residents are able to access the West Dried Meat Lake Landfill but since the landfill is not a County run facility, fees will apply.

The gates at the transfer stations are locked during non-operational hours.  Leaving waste and recyclables outside the locked gates is strictly prohibited.

The transfer stations use a bin/ramp system where all items have to be hand-bombed into the bins.  There is no accommodation for hoist dumping. A variety of recycling options are available at the transfer stations.

4-H Tire Recycling

4-H clubs are able to fundraise through the Alberta Recycling tire collection initiative. Contact Alberta Recycling for details in participating in this program. 

Buck Lake, Gwynne, Lakedell, Mulhurst and Winfield transfer stations are registered tire collection sites.

4-H clubs are required to provide at least a week’s notice by emailing Public Works to ensure that bins are in place or the tire marshalling areas cleared out before a large amount of tires arrive at our sites. This notice provides the drop-off of the tires to go more smoothly for the 4-H club and the transfer station attendants.

ALL RIMS MUST BE REMOVED. The tire processor will not accept any tires with rims.
