Crowsnest/Pincher Creek Landfill Association

Residential Solid Waste

Seperate your waste previous to coming to the Landfill to make disposal faster. Wood and Metal especially. There may be a sorting charge if loads are not seperated and put in the correct bins.   All loads must be weighed in and out at the Scale House. If you have questions about disposal procedures for any type of refuse, please call the scale @ 403-628-3849 Ext #1


Any loads exceeding 500 KG must be paid at the Scale house. (Applies to residents of the Crowsnest Pass, Village of Cowley and the Town of Pincher Creek).

For those of you that live in the MD of Pincher Creek and are hiring a company to haul waste to the Landfill that company will now have to pay for the waste 

and it will be billed back to the resident.    If a MDPC resident brings in waste

2000 KGS (2 Metric Tonnes) or under the MDPC will pay for the load.

If the load is over the 2000 KG limit the resident will have to pay for the whole load at the scale.    Any questions regarding this new policy please contact the

Municipal District of Pincher Creeks office at 403-627-3130.
