All LRWSC Transfer Sites require residents who are accessing the facilities, to present a "proof of residency" to our attendants by showing a utility bill, Lacombe County property tax notice, or a driver's license with a physical/mailing address. The following mailing addresses are NOT acceptable as proof of residency:

Blackfalds PO Box # (require physical address)

Eckville PO Box # (require physical address)

Alix PO Box # (require physical address)

RR#3 Lacombe (require physical address)

RR#1, 3, & 4 Eckville (require physical address)

Photographs of utility bills/tax notices on a smart phone will be accepted, provided that the attendant can read the information while maintaining social distancing (photos of Blue Sign addresses are not accepted)

  Verification of residency will be visually confirmed by the attendants and no personal information will be recorded.  This information is collected under the authority of Section 33(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Residential loads that cannot show proof of residency within the County of Lacombe will be turned away.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our legitimate rate paying residents, however, we are trying to eliminate any out of county residents (non contributing member) from utilizing our sites.
