Recycle Building

We have installed a recycle baler into our recycle building.  We can now bale and ship for recycling, paper, cardboard, plastic and tin.  We accept all of the above items in the recycle building.

We are also grinding 1-7 plastics, no film, for two used plastics processors.  If you look next to our scale house and the recycle centre you will see planters made from Plastic from the Westlock Facility.

Recycle Centre Guidelines

Special Announcement:

To our valued customers and members of public from the Westlock County Region.  The Westlock Regional Landfill located outside of Westlock is still receiving recycle material with some restrictions.

1.  Staff are not allowed to assist customers in unloading.

2.  public is required to sort their own recycle materials.  Do not leave materials in bags, unless it is shredded paper.

3.  all recycle bins are sanitized each time they are rotated into service.

NO GLASS ALLOWED

The transfer station and Landfill are open regular hours.  Staff will not be allowed to assist to unload or to handle any waste, so bring waste in a manageable volume for you to handle.  If you have a cough or a fever please do not come out, if you do please be masked.

Staffs health and wellness are priority so among the above requirements, non staff members will not be allowed into any buildings.  The only exception is essential contractors as required.

Please follow any directions given to you by staff and be safe.

Thank You, Tom Moore, Commission Manager.
