Residential loads that cannot show proof of residency within the County of Lacombe will be turned away.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our legitimate rate paying residents, however, we are trying to eliminate any out of county residents (non contributing member) from utilizing our sites.

Check in with Site Attendant at all times before unloading material!


Burn Pits:

Burn Pits at all LRWSC sites may be forced to close during County Imposed Fire Bans.  No paper or carboard products, as these items can float away while burning and cause grass fires. 

Burn Barrels:

No "hot" material permitted.  Cold material may be dumped in the designated area of each site.  No dumping into Compactor Hopper!

Demolition Waste Material:

We can not accept demolition material at our Landfill without an Asbestos Free Certificate.
