Transfer Sites

Kneehill County operates Waste Transfer Sites for residents throughout the County. Hours of operation and accepted materials vary at each location. Please see below for more information.

Drumheller Landfill

We are also part of the Drumheller and District Solid Waste Association, where much of the waste is transferred for further disposal. Visit the Drumheller Landfill website for more information on the waste and recycling services available for Kneehill County residents.

Please note: Loads must be sorted and directions from site attendants must be adhered to. Some material may not be acceptable. 

Tipping Fees for Non-Residents:

  • 1/2 ton trucks - $20.00
  • 1-ton trucks - $40.00
  • Loads larger than specified - $80.00
  • Freon Appliances - $15.00
