This location is a Chuck Wagon. Chuck Wagons are mobile recycling bins that act as small-scale transfer sites at specific times and locations. When household waste is dropped off, these sites require payment by the Tag-a-Bag system.


The Springhill Waste & Recycling Chuck Wagon is moving around the corner at the Cochrane Desert Industrial Park (CDI) as of October 1, 2023. The new site will better accommodate traffic. Watch for the signs to directing you to the new location, only meters away! See map.
