Update: January 2023

Council has confirmed changes to the County of Stettler recycling program during the January 2023 Council meeting. 


The Stettler Waste Management Authority does not finance Cardboard or Household Recycling Programs at Transfer Stations. 


The County of Stettler has been supporting full supporting recycling at all Transfer Stations, however due to rising costs, the cardboard and household recycling bins were removed on February 2, 2023, from:

  • Stettler Transfer Station

The County of Stettler continues to support recycling, access to the cardboard and household recycling bins will be increased at both the Botha Transfer Site and Erskine Transfer Site. Both Donalda and Big Valley have partnered with the County of Stettler to continue to offer recycling at those Transfer Stations.
