In January 2022 it was announced that the <23L Agricultural pesticide and fertilizer container recycling program will transition from a municipal-based collection model to a retail-based collection model across the province of Alberta over the next three years.

Lacombe Regional Waste Services Commission currently has three sites that accept the <23L containers (Eckville, Alix/Mirror, and Prentiss).  All three of LRWSC sites will discontinue accepting these containers as of December 31, 2024.

Retailers will transition to accepting these containers for recycling by December 31, 2024.

Effective immediately and up to December 31, 2024, LRWSC is asking that all containers brought to our sites must be triple rinsed, labels removed, and bagged.  Bags are available from your retailer, and LRWSC sites that accept the containers.


For further info contact your agricultural chemical retailer or LRWSC @ (403)782-8970.
