About the Lacombe Regional Waste Services Commission

The Lacombe Regional Waste Services Commission (LRWSC) is made up of elected representatives from the City of Lacombe, Lacombe County, Town of Eckville, Town of Bentley, Village of Clive and Village of Alix.

The LRWSC owns and operates five solid waste facilities within Lacombe County, including transfer sites at Eckville, Bentley, Spruceville, Alix/Mirror and a transfer site and Class 3 landfill at the Prentiss location. Approximately 10,000 tonnes of dry rubble is landfilled annually, and almost the same volume of MSW (household/kitchen waste) is transported to the Class 2 landfill at West Dried Meat Lake.

A Board of Directors and a Manager govern the LRWSC. The two larger municipalities, City of Lacombe and Lacombe County, each have two representatives on the board, while the smaller four municipalities each have one representative on the Board for a total of eight members.
