Waste Management

RV Wastewater Dumpsite

The Glenwood RV Wastewater Dumpsite is located at 346 3rd Street North.  The dumpsite is used for disposal of effluent and replenishing potable water.

The dumpsite is seasonally operational from May 1st to September 30th.

The dumpsite is provided as a free service by the Village of Glenwood; however donations are encouraged to keep it so.

Sewer

The Glenwood sewage lagoon is located just southeast of the village.  Sewage is treated here to mitigate environmental effect when discharged into the Glen Lateral twice a year.

Treated lagoon water is tested by the Village to ensure Alberta Environment requirements have been met prior to discharge.

Please note that non-biodegradable items, such as sanitary napkins, heavy-gauge paper towels, and condoms; are not suitable for breakdown in the sewage lagoon.
