In the first 6 weeks of operating the RRC, we diverted 970 tonnes of asphalt shingles, 61 tonnes of vinyl siding and 15 tonnes of drywall from the landfill!

Plastic bags aren't just for lining garbage cans. Tie plastic bags over nearly ripe fruit to keep out bugs and guard against frost damage.

Resource Recovery Centre

The Mountain View Regional Waste Management Commission continues to create environmentally sustainable recycling solutions with the opening of a new Resource Recovery Centre on September 1st, 2009. Located 2 kilometers northwest of Didsbury (at the landfill), the Resource Recovery Centre was created to provide the diversion of construction and demolition waste from landfill. The centre accepts construction and demolition debris that is sorted and clean. Sorting assistance is provide onsite if required, at an additional cost.

You can save money (at least 40% on your tipping fees) and help to provide a sustainable environment by recycling your construction and demolition waste materials.

We are now accepting the following Waste Construction Materials:

  • Drywall/Gypsum - Must be free of wood, plastic, metal edging, and insulation. Nails/screws are acceptable. This is then ground and made into an agricultural soil amendment.
  • Asphalt Shingles - Must be free of tar paper, shingle packing paper, plastic, wood pieces, tar pails and used tools of brushes. Nails are acceptable. They are ground and recycled into a hot mix asphalt process. The environmental benefits of recycling construction and demolition materials can be significant. Recycling can benefit a construction business’s bottom line, and it benefits the environment.
  • Concrete and Asphalt - Includes old asphalt from road repair and removal, and concrete pieces. No soil. Must be no larger 2 ft by 2 ft. Metal rebar is acceptable. Crushed asphalt is used to building new roads. Crushed concrete is used for sub-base gravel.
  • Metal - Includes flashing, eavestrough, metal siding, and appliances. No wood, plastic or other contaminates. Nails are acceptable. These metals are reprocessed for the manufacture of other metal products.
  • Vinyl Siding - Includes clean vinyl siding and vinyl siding components. No building wrap or paper contaminates are allowed.

Contaminated (containing garbage) or mixed materials will be accepted and charged a premium for sorting assistance.

Acceptance criteria

  • Clean and sorted materials are accepted at the listed tipping fee.
  • Contaminated (containing garbage) or mixed loads will be charged for assisted sorting.
  • We reserve the right to refuse any load.

Construction materials typically make up 70 - 95% of the discarded material at a residential or commercial site. They are often discarded, but are actually valuable commodities that can be recycled into new products or used in many ways.
