Delburne Eco Station
(formerly known as the Dry Dump)
The Delburne Eco Station, formerly known as the Dry Dump, is a convenient and easy way to discard some of your recyclables and yard waste.
At the May 9th Council meeting, a motion was made to rename the Delburne Dry Dump to the Delburne Eco Station because the former name creates the confusion that household garbage and commercial waste are accepted at the site.
Last year, Alberta Environment informed the municipality that burning cannot take place at the then-named Dry Dump, so the solution was to rent large compost bins to collect yard waste and then have it hauled away when full. In the next few weeks, Public Works will be ordering signs to reflect the new name. The Delburne Eco Station accepts organic material and recyclable items, including electronic waste (items with freon will not be accepted). For a full list of acceptable items, see the list further down the page.
