Fees Like most municipalities, the Town of Cochrane collects fees from residents and businesses in order to finance waste and recycling services. These rates are adjusted as required to reflect the costs associated with offering waste and recycling services. Currently, all households receiving curbside waste and recycling collection pay $20.55 per month.
All households and businesses in Cochrane also pay an Eco Centre fee of $5 per month for the operation of the Town of Cochrane Eco Centre and special waste programs. Additional Carts Would you like an additional recycling or waste cart? Please contact the utilities department at 403-851-2521. Additional fees apply.
