3 Stream Waste Collection

Town Council has provided an opportunity we can all be proud of, our commitment to rethink waste.

We are excited to be able to roll out the 3-Stream Collection Program this spring! Soon residents will be able to separate their waste into Garbage, Recycling and Compost bins.

With the help of single-family households, we look forward to increasing our waste diversion efforts and furthering our reputation as a sustainable community. Changing our habits can be difficult, but it is necessary for future generations. As a community, we will continue to advance opportunities to increase waste diversion.

For questions, feel free to contact Okotoks Waste Services at 403-938-8054.
