Including recycling programs, yard and garden waste, metal bins, etc. The blue textile bins and Reuse Centre will be closed until further notice. While visiting this facility, please make sure to maintain appropriate physical distance (2m/6 ft). During this time this facility may be busier than usual, in an effort to maintian physical distance, we are limiting the number of vehicles on site to a maximum of 10 at any time. Please be patient, and keep your trips limited to only what is necessary.
The new Recycle BC Depot has now opened at the Cranbrook Transfer Station. To learn more, visit our reycling page at: engage.rdek.bc.ca/recycle
The Cranbrook Transfer Station is located behind Lordco Auto Parts at 2405 22nd St N.

(closed Christmas Day, New Years Day, Remembrance Day, Thanksgiving Day and Family Day)
Even though the Transfer Station is designed to collect garbage from both residential vehicles and City of Cranbrook Garbage Trucks, you will find all kinds of opportunities to recycle or leave items for reuse so they don't end up in the landfill.
We have opened a new Recycle BC Depot at the site for the collection of residential recycling. TO LEARN MORE, CLICK HERE. Recycle BC is a residential program only; however, we do have yellow bins on site for commercial.
There is an area at the Transfer Station for tires; however, they are subject to a tipping fee and we strongly encourage residents to take their tires elsewhere. We have a tipping fee on tires because it costs us to handle and transport them. When you pay an eco fee on tires, it goes to Tire Stewardship BC, a Provincial non-profit society established to ensure the collection and recycling of tires. The RDEK does not get any funding from that program; however, you can take 4 tires at a time (off rim) to the following locations FREE OF CHARGE:
There is also a Reuse Centre at the Cranbrook Transfer Station, which accepts household items in good working condition. It's free to drop items off, and free to pick items up at the Reuse Centre. Some examples of things that can be taken to the Reuse Centre include:
Items that CANNOT be accepted in the Reuse Centre include: large appliances, scrap metal, wood, clothing, automotive parts and mattresses.
Televisions should be taken to the Cranbrook Bottle Depot for recycling.
