Eco-Station Site Development

History of Current Site

The proposed site location will occupy a portion of the current MD Public Works yard.  The current location has been used by the MD for the purpose of providing MD residents with a location where bagged household garbage could be dropped off adjacent to the Town.  The site was developed in 2006 and has been operating without any complaints since that time.  The MD has a current contract with the Pincher Creek/Crowsnest Landfill Association to remove and replace the bins on a regular basis.  Each bin is regulary replaced on average between two to three days and taken to the regional landfill.  These bins are leak proof with a steel mesh doors on the top to keep debris from blowing and to minimize access.

Proposed Site
The proposed location will entail an upgrade and expansion to the existing household garbage site.  The MD and Town are proposing to supply upgraded recycling services to the entire community (See Diagram).  The site will be expanded to add leak proof recycling bins stored on a concrete pad, for the collection and transfer of the following:

With the weather warming we should be able to have the Pronghorn standpipe ready for operation by early April.  Soon as Pronghorn is functioning, we can begin decommissioning of the stand pipe by the MD office. This will be followed by 4-6 weeks of earthwork and fencing to prep for the new Eco station which should be operational by June 01.  These are tentative dates and a number of factors may delay this, but this is our goal and we wanted to provide this update as soon as we had dates that may be achievable.  We thank you all and the Coop Board for their continued patience and cooperation as we make this new facility a reality.
