Waste and Recycling

Curbside Christmas Tree Collection will run from January 2-13th, 2023 on your regular waste and recycling collection day. If you miss the curbside collection bring your tree to the Eco Centre. Place the tree laying down one meter from your cart and have all lights, tinsel, decorations and netting removed.

The Waste & Recycling department manages curbside waste, recycling and organics collection to most households in Cochrane. In addition, they oversee the operation of the Cochrane Eco Centre.
