Waste & Recycling
Keeping our community clean
The Public Works Department is responsible for residential and commercial garbage collection and works closely with the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George to offer a variety of waste disposal and recycling opportunities.
Mackenzie Transfer Station
The new Mackenzie Transfer Station facility offers improved convenience and additional waste diversion opportunities with recycling drop off now available on site. A bin has been placed at the site to accept mixed paper and cartons and containers as well as a bin for corrugated cardboard recycling. This is in addition to current recycling drop off locations within the community. There are also designated places on site to drop off used oil, old propane tanks, antifreeze, household appliances, automotive batteries and yard and garden waste. The swap shed will also be available on site.
There is no change to what items can be disposed of at the site and tipping fees and operational hours remain unchanged. With the opening of the new transfer station, the existing landfill will shift to accept demolition and land clearing debris and construction waste only.
Annual Community Clean-Up Event
Every year the community of Mackenzie pulls together to help clean up our town. We would like to encourage all residents to participate in cleaning around your neighborhood. We will be having a "Curbside Pick Up" of household appliances which gives you an opportunity to get rid of any old items that may be taking up space. Hazardous drop off will also be available, where you can drop off paint, small batteries, and old electronics. There will also be a celebration BBQ for all those who participate. Further details will be available closer to the event date. Stay tuned for 2021 event details!
