  • Please remain in vehicle until approached by Eco Station staff.
  • Only one person will be allowed out of a vehicle.
  • When on site, respect safe distancing guidelines between others.
  • Please follow all signs relating to product drop-off and safe handling of materials.
  • Only handle your own material. Do not handle any other material dropped off by others.
  • First bag of household waste is free, additional bags are $2 each. Exact change must be provided, as change will not be available. 
  • Tips on managing extra waste are available on our Special Disposal Services page.
  • Bring your own shovel and pail to pick up compost and mulch.

We kindly ask customers for their patience and cooperation during this time. Thank you for continuing your waste sorting and recycling efforts!

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.
