Please note: We are asking residents to only visit the Eco Centre if it’s absolutely necessary.
If you are unable to visit the Eco Centre store household hazardous waste (e.g. chemicals, paints, batteries), electronics, styrofoam, K-Cups and other acceptable items until you are able to drop them off at the Eco Centre.

- A maximum of 4 persons allowed in the building at a time.
- Maintain a two meter distance from others.
- Pre-sort your waste prior to visiting the Eco Centre.

- There is an alternative location available if you're dropping off clean cardboard. Please inform staff to have this arranged for you.
The following services at the Centre are closed until further notice:

The Eco Centre is a self-sorting, drop-off facility where residents can take items that can't be place in their black garbage cart, green organic cart or blue recycling cart, including electronics, hazardous waste, car batteries etc. The Eco Centre is also a convenient solution for when your blue or green carts are full or when items won’t fit in your cart.
Stop in to chat with the friendly staff, grab a free book from our used book corner, and drop off your extra items!
- Please follow all signage and dispose of plastic bags and other garbage at the provided waste receptacles.
- The Eco Centre is open to residents of Okotoks and Foothills County. Commercial vehicles will be turned away by on-site staff.
- Access to the Eco Centre and the drop off areas are only available during normal operating hours.
