Commercial Solid Waste and Recycling

No commercial waste will be accepted at the Rocky Mountain House Eco Centre. Town businesses are welcome to use the Eco Centre for recycling and diversion programs.

The owners/landlords of Apartment Buildings, Residential Complexes, Mobile Home Parks and multi-plexes not approved for curbside Collection Service must arrange and pay for Waste Material collection services from a private commercial waste hauler, including the payment of any tipping fees to the private commercial waste hauler.
