The Long Lake Regional Waste Management Services Commission was incorporated under the Municipal Government Act through Alberta Regulation 98/91. The Commission is comprised of the municipalities of: Town of Grimshaw, Town of Manning, Village of Berwyn and County of Northern Lights.
Service Area and Facilities
The Commission’s service area includes the area within the boundaries of the County of Northern Lights and the Towns of Grimshaw and Manning and the Village of Berwyn. Facilities owned and operated by the Commission include: Long Lake Regional Landfill, Hawk Hills, Manning, Sunny Valley, Deadwood, Dixonville, Weberville, Warrensville and Grimshaw Transfer Stations.
The transfer stations are “green-box” type facilities that provide a local drop-off service for residents in their respective areas, while the urban municipalities provide collection services, generally through private contractors with the collected wastes hauled directly to the landfill.
Regional Landfill Location
The Long Lake Regional Landfill is located in a forested area on LSD 10 and LSD 15 of the NW 03-86-24-W5, which is approximately 27 kilometres north of Grimshaw. Access to the site is gained along the Daishowa logging road, which leads to the west from Highway #35.
