Recycling at Community Events

Did you know that the Town of Cochrane will deliver the Recycle Ranger Trailer to your community event at no charge to help you divert your event waste?

If you are hosting a music festival, community bbq or sporting event, the Recycle Ranger Trailer can help your community event send less to landfill and more to recycling!

The Recycle Ranger Trailer is a 4 component trailer for the collection of the following recyclables:

  • Refundable Beverage Containers (you can chose to keep the revenue from the return deposits or to donate them money to the default fundraiser)
  • Cardboard
  • Mixed Paper
  • Mixed Plastic
Once you have booked the Recycle Ranger Trailer, our Waste & Recycling staff will deliver it to your event, set it up, pick it up at the end of your event and sort the materials for recycling at the Cochrane Eco Centre.

To book the Recycle Ranger Trailer please book through the Town of Cochrane Infrastructure Services 403-851-2590 or email please book at least 10 days in advance.

Thank you to ABCRC, SPUR and CEAC, without your support the Recycle Ranger Trailer would not be possible!
