On May 27, 2019, Council voted to allow the contract with Environmental 360 Solutions for curbside recycling collection to expire at the end of its term on May 31, 2019, and directed City administration to monitor the state of the recycling industry and report on opportunities to re-establish residential curb side recycling in Lacombe when viable. Please refer to the following media release for further information on the changes taking place.
Residents are advised that Council is not turning its back on recycling. While residential curbside collection has been discontinued, the Wolf Creek Recycle Depot, located at 5214 Wolf Creek Drive, remains operational and will accept certain types of clean, sorted recyclables. Residents can keep their Blue Boxes to transport clean, sorted recyclables to the site.
Along with accepting recyclables at the Wolf Creek Recycle Depot, the City is conducting a comprehensive Solid Waste System review, which will provide more information to help set the future direction of solid waste collection in Lacombe. The City will also be emphasizing existing but underutilized waste diversion programs such as home composting in the coming weeks.
