Chemical Container Recycling Moving to Ag Retailers
Farmers will be able to return empty jugs up to 23L to the point of purchase. For more information click here
Between now and the end of 2024, empty ag jug collection sites will move from municipal depots at landfills sites and transfer stations
to ag retail collection sites across Alberta.
When you purchase pesticides and fertilizers your ag retailer will give you a free ag collection bag to store and transport your empty, rinsed container.
Please use a separate bag for your seed treatment containers.
The process is being phased in and the entire process will be completed by the end of 2024. In spring 2023, before farmers return empty jugs,
they are encouraged to call their local retailer to ask if they have begun accepting empty containers for recycling.
Scheduled dates for when the pesticide and fertilizer container recycling program will end at the County Transfer locations:
Evergreen Regional Landfill - December 2024
Ashmont, Mallaig, St. Lina, Edouard and Whitney Lakes - December 2024

Since the Recycling Beverage Container Program began in October 2020, residents have dropped off their empty beverage containers to Transfer Stations. Through this program and the work of society/ club members, over 71,600 beverage containers have been recycled (as of November 2022).
Proceeds from returned beverage containers have gone back to support the Elk Point 4-H Beef Club, Lac Sante Recreation Family Society and
the Mallaig and District Ag Society.
Please continue your support by dropping off empty beverage containers at the Transfer Stations.
The program will continue until December 31, 2023.
Thank you to everyone who contributed their containers. Please continue to support these organizations.

Free collection bags for collecting plastic twine are available at the County’s Transfer Stations.
Why plastic twine should be recycled Burning the twine is one of the worst options because it releases toxins. It’s estimated that 2,200 tonnes of plastic twine, on average, is generated on Alberta farms in a year. That’s a lot that could end up in landfills.
This pilot project is extended to December 31, 2025.
[Note: The Town of St. Paul and Town of Elk Point Transfer Stations and Evergreen Waste Management Transfer Stations are not part of this pilot project.]
In 2022, 221,820 kgs of tires have been hauled away for recycling.
