Cleanfarms, under a contract with the Alberta Plastic Recycling Group, is operating a three-year agricultural recycling program to collect grain bags and twine.
Trochu’s nearest collection site is at the Drumheller Landfill, and they accept both grain bags and twine under the following conditions:
- Grain bags must be relatively clean (5% contamination allowed), rolled, and tied with twine
- Twine must be relatively clean and placed into clear bags, no net wrap, or silage plastic allowed
- Bags or twine that aren’t acceptable to Cleanfarms will have to be landfilled at a charge of $62.50/tonne
Calling prior to delivery is preferred if you have large amounts (eg. a flat deck trailer full) but one or two grain bags or a few bags of twine can be accepted without scheduling. Customers must be at the Landfill by 4:00 pm., Mon – Fri. They may accept one or two bags on Saturdays however large volumes will not be accepted.
If you have questions specific to the Drumheller Landfill, please visit drumhellerlandfill.com or call 403-823-1345. For more general information and to find other collection sites, visit the Cleanfarms website.
We say goodbye to an important piece of Trochu’s history now that the demolition of Pontmain School is complete. See a short history and photos here.
The last compost pick up was November 1st. Thanks to the Town Staff that made this program possible this year.
Compost Pick Up will resume again in the spring of 2020.
As of November 1st, 2019, scavenging at the Trochu Transfer site will be STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
This prohibition is due to safety issues. An area where smaller items of value can be dropped off for reuse by the general public will be monitored by Town of Trochu staff.
