Lac Ste. Anne County operates 8 Transfer Stations located near Rich Valley, Onoway, Darwell, Cherhill, Sangudo, Rochfort Bridge, Mayerthorpe and Hillcrest for use by County taxpayers only.  Waste collected at the Transfer Stations is hauled to the Main Landfill Site and paid for by Lac Ste. Anne County.  Lac Ste. Anne County residents must have a Transfer Station Permit card to access these sites.  Residents of Towns, Villages and Summer Villages within the County do not pay towards the operation of these Transfer Stations, so they are NOT entitled to use them.

Our mission is to operate our site efficiently, safely and in an environmentally responsible manner, while providing the highest quality waste disposal to both public and private customers.
