Welcome to the LRWSC Website

Lacombe Regional Waste Services Commission owns and operates five solid waste management facilities within the Lacombe County boundaries.  We have transfer sites at or near Eckville, Bentley, Alix/Mirror, Spruceville, and a transfer site and class 3 landfill at our Prentiss location (see map below).

We currently transport nearly 10,000 MT of MSW to the class 2 landfill at West Dried Meat Lake.  We are licensed to landfill 10,000 MT of dry rubble annually at our Prentiss site, but through co-operative diversionary tactics, we strive to reduce landfill volumes each year.

Please click on the above categories to find specific details and information.  Under transfer sites, you will find all information about each site.

Responsible for management of solid waste for seven members, Lacombe County, City of Lacombe, Town of Bentley, Town of Blackfalds, Town of Eckville, Village of Alix and Village of Clive. Originally there were 6 transfer sites, Eckville, Bentley, Spruceville, Alix/ Mirror, Blackfalds and Prentiss. Blackfalds opted out of membership in 2010, closing the Blackfalds transfer site.
