What if I have more waste than what fits in the waste cart?

If you have excess waste you have 3 options: 

1. Purchase Town of Cochrane  excess waste bags, put your waste in the bags and place it beside your waste cart on your collection day. Bags can be purchased at the Cochrane RancheHouse, Visitor Information Centre or at the Cochrane Eco Centre during regular operational hours for $3 each. 

2. The Cochrane Eco Centre (50 Griffin Industrial Point) accepts clear bagged household waste for $3/bag.  All recycling and organics must be removed prior to disposal. 

3. If you have excess waste on a regular basis you can make arrangements for an additional waste cart; a set up fee and an additional monthly charge will apply.  Please call the Waste and Recycling Hotline at 403-851-2277 for details.
