About the Landfill
Every load brought to the landfill is weighed and directed to the proper disposal area. Household garbage goes to the working face with separate areas for metal, tires, compost, concrete, asphalt, and clean wood/branches. The working face is packed daily and covered every two days.
On average, 18,399 tonnes of waste is delivered to the Wetaskiwin Sanitary Landfill every year. Of that amount, 10,095 tonnes (55%) is recycled or otherwise diverted from the working face.
