Irricana Transfer Site

Rocky View County and the Town of Irricana have worked closely together to settle on a joint use agreement for a trial period between June and December 2018 that will allow Irricana residents access to the site on Saturdays only from 9am – 5pm. This trial period is being offered to determine the appropriate level of service, to assess site usage rates and to set an annual fee for future use that reflects cost recovery for the County. Customer feedback will be used to assess if one day a week is an adequate level of service. Access to the transfer site comes at the same rates, rights and limitations as Rocky View County residents.

The agreement is made in the spirit of regional collaboration with mutual benefits to both parties. The Town of Irricana is happy to work closely with Rocky View County to provide necessary services to all residents.
