The High River Recycle Centre and the yard waste drop off are located at Operational Services at 640 7 Street N.W.
Starting on April 1, summer hours will be in effect:
* Saturday & Sunday – 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
* Monday & Friday – 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
* Tuesday – Thursday – 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
As of November 1, 2019 the Recycling Center will be going to winter hours:
• 8:00 am till 5:00 pm daily, Sunday through Saturday.
Please note that the centre is not open on Statutory Holidays. Items cannot be left after hours.
We ask residents to please ensure all recyclables are clean. Dirty cardboard or plastics contaminate our loads and cost the Town money at the sorting facility. Residents who do not want to clean their recyclables are asked to please place them in their residential garbage to minimize the risk of contaminating recycling loads.
There is signage, with examples, at the Recycling Centre to help residents properly sort their recyclables. Please ask Town personnel who are on-site for help if you have questions.
The Foothills salvage centre accepts household items, clothing and other merchandise in usable condition. The centre is run by the Foothills Recycling and Salvage Society (FRSS), which is a non-profit society dedicated to keeping usable and recyclable items out of the landfill and to make items accessible and affordable.
They recently moved into a new 11,000 sq ft. facility located adjacent to the Foothills Regional Landfill site on Highway 783, approximately 13 km north of High River. They rely on a dedicated group of volunteers to help run the facility and have recently partnered with High River and Okotoks correctional services; a recognized volunteer program for individuals with minor offence violations who must complete community service hours.
Hours of operation are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday – Sat. For more information on how to donate, volunteer and/or shop at the centre, Click here to go their website.
