Ag Roundup days are back for a 15th summer of agricultural recycling in small RVC communities.

Rocky View County (RVC) solid waste and recycling are back for their 15th summer of Agricultural (Ag) Roundup days from July 3 to September 4. 

Solid waste and recycling advisor Christian Yee said Ag Roundups are one-day events where RVC helps seven remote communities recycle their agricultural materials, including unused tires, wire, paint, plastic twine, grain bags over 50 bushels, electronics, or clean livestock lick tubes.

Ag Roundup days do not accept garbage such as appliances, mesh netting, bale, feed, seed, wood, or empty chemical and pesticide containers. 

Roundups will go from 9:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m. on July 3 at Madden Chuck Wagon, July 24 at the Bottrel General Store, July 31 at the Delacour Community Hall, August 7 at Co-op Agro Centre on 29340 Hwy 2A, August 28 at the Balzac Chuck Wagon, and September 4 at the Jumping Pound Community Hall.

Once a resident has reached an Ag Roundup site, a RVC attendant will record your name, phone number, address, and your community of residence before directing you to the location to drop off materials, said Yee.

Yee explained that RVC has accounted for 10 per cent of Alberta’s total twine recycling, and they are immensely proud of the help that they can bring to small communities through Ag Roundup days.

“Rocky View County residents are doing a great job with diverting their plastic materials and all their other ag materials to the county so that we can recycle them properly and responsibly,” said Yee.
