Wind and Weather

Special Notices: There are currently no special notices about our operations. See Hours for operating hours over holiday periods.

It is often very windy at our site compared to elsewhere in the Bow Valley. To help us respect our fence line and protect neighbouring provincial parks all loose litter must be contained in clear plastic bags or other means of containment. Before leaving your job site be sure to contain your loose litter and check our current wind conditions. We reserve the right to refuse loads with uncontained litter when average wind conditions exceed 15 kilometres per hour or any time we believe emptying your load will result in fugitive litter.

Loads that release uncontained litter while tipping will be subject to a surcharge to assist with our costs in managing litter.

Be sure to bookmark this page or call the scale office at 403-673-2708 for current wind restrictions.
