Newspapers can be recycled and used as mulch. This will reduce evaporation by up to 70%, cutting water use in the summer months.
Transfer Sites

Transfer stations are places where local residents can deposit their waste cargo prior to loading into larger vehicles. These larger vehicles transport the waste to the end point of disposal or treatment.

The Mountain View Regional Waste Management Commission operates Waste Transfer Stations at Olds, Sundre, Didsbury, Water Valley, and the MVRWMC Landfill, where MVRWMC transfers solid waste to the Landfill site near Didsbury.
