Take It Or Leave It Program

Waste Management.jpg

Have an item you don’t want, but is still in good condition? The Take It or Leave It program allows county residents to leave items that other residents can take free of charge. The Take It or Leave It program is another step in Red Deer County’s efforts to reduce the amount of waste going into our landfills.

The Take It or Leave It building is located at the Horn Hill Waste Transfer Facility (NE33-36-27-W4. 1 mile east of Highway 2). Items going into the facility as “leave it” are subject to the current fee schedule for residential waste, however, items removed from the facility as “take it” are free of charge. Examples items include: coffee tables, TV stands, furniture, any working appliances or electronic items, lawn furniture, etc. Please note, the designated Take It or Leave It area is the only area of the facility from which items can be removed. Scavenging for materials in other areas of the waste management facility is strictly prohibited.

If there are any questions on how the program works, feel free to speak to the scale house attendant for further clarification and direction.

For more information on this program, please call Andy Treu at 403.357.2365.

How It Works:

Leave it:

  • Scale your vehicle in and out and pay for your load according to the current fee schedule.
  • Rather than dumping your item(s) on the waste tipping floor, place it in the designated Take it or Leave it building.
  • The facility operators have the authority to monitor items being left behind and will ultimately determine if they are fit for the program or not.
  • After items have been dropped off, proceed to the scale to weigh out. Proceed into the scale house and pay accordingly.

Take It

  • If you are using the waste management facility, you are able to enter the Take it or Leave it building to browse through items
  • You are welcome to load and remove these items from the facility, at no charge.
  • If you brought material into the facility, you are required to weigh in and weigh out. Items removed for the Take it or Leave it building may offset the weight of your outgoing load, and therefore reduce the price you will pay at the scale.
  • After weighing out, please proceed to the scale house for payment (if necessary) and indicate to the attendant what items are being removed as per the Take it or Leave it program.
