Effective tomorrow (September 8, 2022) the Eco Centre will be operational from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm - 6 days a week, closed on Tuesdays.
The MD thanks the users of the centre for their constructive feedback and working with us through the transition to the new system. While we understand that there are some challenges, the changes to a manned site were necessary as the historical abuse and safety concerns with the misuse of the previous set up were multiple and persistent.
Through a manned site we can better attempt to mitigate potential concerns (hazardous materials being left) and also keep the area from looking like an eye sore for the residents and visitors of our wonderful community.
We thank the public for their understanding and patience as we navigate through this process. Changes may continue to occur as we learn what works best for the community.
A reminder that the Pincher Creek Crowsnest Landfill has the ability to take more items that the Eco Centre allows, as well as offers alternate hours of operation. They are currently open Monday to Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
To prevent the continual misuse, the Eco Centre is now staffed and operated by the Pincher Creek Waste & Recycle Centre (Crowsnest/Pincher Creek Landfill Association). Like other businesses, there are hours of operation. Please note that garbage left at the gate of the Eco Centre is considered littering. As a community we can do much better!
The Town and MD are actively working with bylaw officers to ensure this does not happen again and to enforce misuse. We would like to take a second to thank the kind man who took the time to help our staff clean up the mess and keep our community clean.
Operational changes may be altered moving forward depending on constructive feedback from the public. We are currently working with the landfill to adjust operating hours so the site can open prior to 8am to allow for drop off of material at that time of the morning. An official announcement will be made once this is finalized between all the partners involved in this project.
For questions specific to the Eco Centre and what can be brought, please contact Pincher Creek Waste & Recycle Centre directly at 403 628-3849, all other inquiries can be made to your local municipal office.
** A reminder that the centre is open today (Tuesday September 6) due to the holiday long weekend. Regular hours will resume for next week. Hours of operation will be 7:30 am to 5:30 pm 6 days a week
