The Mountain View Regional Waste Landfill site is located two (2) kilometres northwest of the Town of Didsbury. The Commission operates the landfill under an approval from Alberta Environment. The approval authorizes the disposal of Class II waste in isolated cells. Site construction began in October 2004 with the installation of an engineered liner; a leachate collection system; a surface drainage retention pond, and monitoring wells. The landfill requires ongoing capital cell expansion to accommodate waste volumes.
All solid waste generated within the County is accepted at the landfill and all solid waste accepted at Commission transfer sites is hauled to the landfill. A recycling depot is located at the transfer station and accepts all recycling materials and household hazardous waste from within the County boundary. Household hazardous waste disposal and recycling is made available to Didsbury residents at all Transfer Site locations.
