Solid Waste & Recycling
Solid Waste Services, part of the Public Works department, manages the disposal of household waste, recyclables, and other domestic and commercial waste.
With the exception of the Hamlet of Entwistle, Parkland County does not offer curbside waste and recyclable pick-up for its residents. Instead, residents are provided with a Solid Waste Disposal Access card that allows them to drop off their regular household waste and recyclables at no charge at any of the transfer stations.
Waste collection is also available through private contractors in some areas of Parkland County. Contact Public Works at 780-968-8448 for more information.
In 2008, Parkland County closed all its landfills and converted the sites to transfer stations. The only landfills left in the county are privately owned and not part of Parkland County’s waste management system.
Parkland County’s transfer stations provide a range of waste disposal services to Parkland County residents. Waste and recycling disposal services, hours of operation, and costs vary between the different transfer stations. Check the Transfer Station Locations and Information link for more details.

Updates (March 25, 2013)
As of April 2, 2013 summer hours at all rural solid waste tranfer stations will commence. Scheduled daytime hours will run 9 AM - 5PM at all rural transfer stations EXCEPT Sunday's at the Seba Beach, Kapasiwin, Moon Lake, and Keephills sites, which now run from 10 AM - 4 PM.
The Parkland County Transfer Station (Range Road 11 Location) will be closed on Good Friday March 28, 2013.
The Village of Wabamun will no longer sell/distribute waste vouchers. Please remember that you can now make payment with Credit/debit at both the Kapasiwin and Seba Beach Waste Transfer stations.
Save Time and Money. Please seperate all recyclables from your waste before heading out to the transfer station. Being organized when you drop off waste will save you time when on site and help to alleviate line-ups. Seperating recyclables from waste items helps to alleviate costs associated with loading and hauling your garbage.
Keep your county clean and your roadways safe. Please ensure your loads are tarped and secured. Fines are possible if loads are deemed unsafe or if waste spills out of a vehicle into roads and ditches. We appreciate your cooperation.
We are not currently accepting fridges and freezers at the Kapaswin and Seba Beach Transfer stations. We will update this page when we will again accept these two items. Please take your fridges and freezers to any of our other waste transfer stations. We are however still accepting all other appliances as per usual.

Now open Sundays 10:00 AM - 4:00PM (Summer hours only).
Bluebag recycling now at Seba Beach transfer station.
Credit and Debit card payments now accepted for chargeable loads and voucher sales at the Seba Beach and Kapasiwin waste transfer stations.
Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan
Parkland County retained Stantec Consulting to review the County's waste management plan and identify economical and practical solutions for waste management in the County, including landfills, transfer stations, waste energy facilities, recycling and composting.
At the Regular Council Meeting on March 9, 2010, Council was presented with the Parkland County Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan. After the presentation, Council passed a resolution that the Integrated Waste Management Plan be approved with the following recommendations:
- Continue to pursue a landfill site within Parkland County to handle from 12,000 to 50,000 tonnes of waste per year.
- Extend the long-term waste disposal options at Beaver Regional Landfill (Ryley) and MCL Drayton Valley.
- Evaluate and reconsider residential curb-side collection of waste and recyclables in 2015.
- Upgrade the Seba Beach and Kapasiwin waste transfer facilities to a compacted bin system using the 1.5 million dollar MSI Grant Funding.
- Develop yard and garden waste programs at all transfer stations.
