ECO CENTRE OPENS JUNE 2 WITH MODIFIED PROGRAMS

The Cochrane Eco Centre is reopening next week with modifications in place to protect staff and the community.

The operational plan was reviewed and approved by the Town Emergency Coordination Centre and meets provincial requirements.

The Eco Centre opens at 9am starting Tuesday June 2, and then Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9am until 5pm. Some high-touch programs that could transmit COVID-19 have been temporarily suspended.

Programs available:

  • Cardboard, newspaper, newsprint, mixed paper
  • Mixed rigid plastic containers
  • Beverage containers
  • Food waste
  • Glass
  • Mixed metal
  • Branches, grass clippings, leaves
  • E-Waste
  • Used oil, oil filters, anti-freeze liquid
  • Paint
  • Propane tanks
  • Textile/clothing donation
  • Household Hazardous Waste

Only half the drop-off windows will be open so it’s easier to keep physical distance of two metres. Residents are asked to sort their waste at home to minimize the time at each window.

Other guidelines are also in place to keep staff and the community safe: only three vehicles allowed in the yard at a time (traffic controlled at the gate), and only one person per vehicle (wearing gloves) is allowed to handle material. Staff are not available to assist.

Modified operations mean it will likely take longer to drop off recycling. Eco Centre staff are asking everyone to be patient.

The Eco Centre is open to residents of Cochrane and Rocky View County only.

Programs temporarily suspended:

  • Book room (including batteries, light bulbs, etc.)
  • Large appliances (fridges, washers, dryers, microwaves, etc.)
  • Styrofoam
  • Plastic film
  • Bike exchange
