Regional Landfill - Commercial Haulers Out of Boundary Waste

July 5, 2016

The Foothills Regional Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre has a policy to only accept waste generated from within the communities of: MD of Foothills, High River, Okotoks, Black Diamond, Turner Valley and Nanton. It has become apparent that some commercial haulers have been hauling waste to the landfill from outside our boundaries, including South Calgary. The Foothills Regional Services Commission will be investigating commercial customers to determine the origin of their loads. If a company is found to be hauling refuse to the Foothills Regional Landfill, from outside the member municipality's boundaries, their rates for all loads will immediately increase to $150.00/tonne on every load going forward.
