Bag Limit
To reduce the quantity of garbage going to the landfill site, the town has a three bag limit on all residential garbage collection.

What to do with Access Garbage

If you have more than three bags, an extra tag is required for each bag. Each tag is $1.50 and can be purchased at the Town Administration Office at:
5116 50th Ave.
Rocky Mountain House, AB T4T 1B2

Affix the tag onto the extra garbage bags so that they can be seen by the collector. Garbage in the excess of the three bag limited can also be taken to the Waste Transfer Site:

Rocky Mountain House, AB T4T 1B2
