Single Stream Recycling Services for Membership Residents

The Peace Regional Waste Management Company has transitioned to a single stream blue/clear bag recycling system. We have streamlined our services and repositioned ourselves to be in alignment with the TOPR blue bag curbside collection and to pivot with the planned Alberta Government’s province wide EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) program. To provide an optimized recycling experience we have also secured access (fenced and gated), to the Eco Centre and will be monitoring recyclable materials coming onto site in the near future.

Please place all of your recyclable materials in blue/clear bags and place into any of the large bins designated for recyclable materials, provided at the Eco Centre, the Landfill and Transfer Stations. Recycling within our service area will no longer be required to be sorted. For a full list of locations and service hours accepting recyclable materials, please visit our website.

Jar/Bottle glass (all non-refunable glass jar/bottle types) collection has been discontinued in our service area, and is now a waste stream item only. DO NOT place in any blue, or white bag collection streams; including Town of Peace River blue bag curbside collection. Please place these items in with your waste.

All ARMA funded and administered programs will still be collected, such as electronics, household hazardous waste and paint. We are not set up to take used oil, gas or any petroleum products at this time. It will hopefully be a soon add on. Fluorescent bulbs, printer toner cartridges and batteries will still be collected at the Eco Centre location only.

The Management and Staff look forward to our continued recycling together now and into the future.
