Donation Shed

Rocky View County has teamed up with Diabetes Canada to collect unwanted textiles and small household items in the donation shed located on site—items such as clothing and linens, housewares, books, toys, and knick-knacks.

Residents are asked to package hard items, such as books, plates, small appliances, and toys in boxes before bringing them to the donation shed; all other items may be packaged in plastic bags or boxes.


The transfer site cannot accept large amounts of renovation and construction materials at this time. It is the responsibility of the home owner to transport this material to an appropriate facility.
