  • Thursday, September 17 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Bussey Pit
  • Thursday, September 24 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Reeve Pit and Bussey Pit

Please phone Cindy Disher at 403-230-1401 or email in advance to indicate which location and day you’re planning to load.

How to Buy Gravel

The County only sells gravel in BULK—a tandem gravel truck or larger similar vehicle is required.

Gravel tickets must be pre-purchased in person at the County Hall between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday (excludes Statutory Holidays). Payment may be made by cash, debit, cheque, or Mastercard/Visa. Proof of identity and residency (e.g. driver’s licence) is required at time of purchase.

Loading will be done by the County but you are responsible to arrange your own tandem gravel truck (or larger) to haul the material at your own expense. Pickup trucks and utility trailers will not be loaded and partial loads are not allowed.
