This location is a Transfer Site. Transfer sites are large areas that are designed to collect many different material types such as yard waste, garbage, e-waste, tires, and recycling. When household waste is dropped off, these sites require payment by cash or the Tag-a-Bag system.

The Irricana Transfer Site accepts household hazardous waste and agricultural recycling year round from residents. Farmers from neighbouring counties may now also drop off clean plastic grain bags and twine for recycling as part of the Alberta Ag Plastic. Recycle It! pilot program. For large loads, please call ahead.
