The Town of Okotoks continues to be committed to reducing waste and maximizing the lifespan of the Foothills Regional Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre. In 2014 Council adopted the comprehensive 2020 Waste Management Plan; an objective of this plan is to divert 80% of the waste produced in Okotoks from the landfill by 2020. To help achieve this goal is all multi-family residential properties must have a recycling collection program in place by July 1, 2017 and an organics collection program in place by January 1, 2018.
Waste diversion programs support local businesses, stimulate the economy, provide meaningful employment opportunities, potentially increase property values due to less local landfills and enhance the overall feeling of well-being in the community.
The Town of Okotoks is pleased to provide assistance to the multi – family sector with implementing these programs in complexes such as apartments, condominiums and housing cooperatives.
Your efforts and participation will continue to move the Town of Okotoks towards building a unique, resilient, sustainable community.
