Communities served


Village of Cremona
The Commission provides household pickup bi-weekly. The Village provides rollout bins that are emptied by the Commission's truck, and transported to the landfill. A recycling depot at Cremona, open to both Village and County residents, is operated by the Commission and provides for collection of recyclables. The Village is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the recycling site. Compost is collected by the Village and on request, the Commission trucks the compost to the Olds College. Household hazardous waste disposal and recycling is made available to Cremona residents at all Transfer Site locations.


Town of Didsbury
The Mountain View Regional Waste Landfill site is located two (2) kilometres northwest of the Town of Didsbury. The Commission operates the landfill under registration approval of Alberta Environment. The approval authorizes the disposal of Class II and Class III waste in isolated cells. Site construction began in October 2004 with the installation of an engineered liner; a leachate collection system; a surface drainage retention pond, and monitoring wells. The landfill requires ongoing capital cell expansion to accommodate waste volumes. All solid waste generated within the County is accepted at the landfill and all solid waste accepted at Commission transfer sites is hauled with Commission trucks to the landfill. A waste drop area (transfer site) for residential disposal is provided for the public. A recycling depot is located at the transfer station and accepts all recycling materials and household hazardous waste from within the County boundary. Household hazardous waste disposal and recycling is made available to Didsbury residents at all Transfer Site locations.
