Fournier Landfill - Scale Operations - Effective May 1st

Effective May 1, 2021, the Town of Cochrane will be using a weigh scale to collect tipping fees at the Fournier Landfill Site. When you enter the landfill, you will need to stop at the weigh scale. Users must be prepared to pay tipping fees based on the type of load being brought into the landfill. Only debit or credit cards are accepted at the landfill. All signage and directions from the landfill attendant must be followed and respected. Below are the 2021 Fournier Landfill fees (with the exception of when the scales are not operational). A reminder that all loads must be tarped or covered to be transported to the landfill. Once arriving at the landfill but prior to entering the scale, all loads must be uncovered and visible to the landfill attendant.

Sorting your waste prior to going to the landfill could save you money! Any recyclable items that are accepted at the landfill may be removed in the appropriate location as directed by signage prior to entering onto the scale. Ask the landfill attendant to help with any questions you may have when you show up to the landfill.

During the Provincial Stay-At-Home order, our landfill remains open. For the safety of all members of the public and Town staff, the public is asked to respect the protocols in place for COVID-19 and we ask that all users wear a mask when paying tipping fees, interacting with Town staff, or other members of the public.
