Soil stockpiling

Soil stockpiling

A location has been secured in Abrams Land to stockpile soil from rebuild communities.

From December 16, 2019 until May 1, 2020 access to the rebuild excavations and backfill Soil Stockpile Site at Abram’s Land will be by appointment only.   

Please call 780.792.8839 or 780.792.5992 for access between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM on Monday, Wednesday or Friday.

Stockpiling the soil will significantly reduce the quantity of rebuild-related material entering the Regional Landfill as it can be repurposed in the future. 

Soil from rebuild areas will not be accepted at the Regional Landfill and property owners and contractors are encouraged to use the stockpiling site.

The stockpile site is located at the rear southwest corner of Abrams Land and can be accessed on the west side of Thickwood Boulevard across from Dickins Drive. 

Soil from outside of wildfire-damaged properties must be taken to the Regional Landfill where it will be subject to the disposal guidelines set out in the Utility Rates Bylaw No. 10/001.
