The Eco Station offers residents, schools and businesses from Leduc, Leduc County and Beaumont a staffed drop-off location designed to divert a range of material from the landfill. Materials are accepted free of charge for recycling, with the exception of general household waste, where the first bag is free and additional bags are $2 each (exact change must be provided).

We welcome small loads of materials for recycling and safe disposal.
