COVID-19 Operating Status

The Francis Cooke Landfill and Resource Recovery Centre remains open during normal hours to serve the waste management needs of the Bow Valley. Our operating status may change at any time. Please call 403-673-2708 or revisit this page regularly for updates on our operating status.

In the interest of minimizing health risks to our staff and the community, keep a safe distance from others on our site at all times. Please be familiar with our user’s handbook so you can organize your loads in advance and minimize handling by our staff.
We ask that you, and your staff, continue to stay vigilant to the ongoing threat and assist our staff by:

  • Ensuring that drivers do not enter the Francis Cooke site if they are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms,
  • Respecting the 2 metre personal distance guidelines between drivers and staff, or other site users, at all times when visiting the Francis Cooke site,
  • Identifying at the scale (403-673-2708) any waste materials destined for our facility which are suspected of having been exposed to COVID-19 e.g. material from clean up of hotel rooms or other accommodation.

If you are working on a job which could generate material with any suspected risk of COVID-19 exposure, we ask that you contact us with detail prior to hauling to the Francis Cooke landfill site.
