Who We Are
Claystone Waste Ltd. (Claystone) is a municipally controlled corporation that provides leading waste management, waste collection, and landfill services for residential communities and professional enterprises in central Alberta. Every day we strive to find new ways to make sure no waste goes to waste – because a cleaner, safer future depends on it.
Thirty Years of Expertise
Claystone was established as a municipally controlled corporation in 2020, but we’ve been leaders in waste management for a lot longer than that. Previously, we operated under the names Beaver Municipal Solutions and the Beaver Regional Waste Management Services Commission, representing over three decades of progress, innovation, and outstanding service.
No matter what we’ve been called, we’ve always believed the same thing – that proper landfill and waste management leads to happier, healthier societies both today and in the long run.
The Cornerstone of Claystone
Our centre of operations is the Claystone Regional Landfill in Beaver County, a sanitary class II landfill facility located just north of the Village of Ryley, which opened for business in 1992. Since then, we have worked hard to develop this landfill into one of the largest and most technologically advanced facilities of its kind in western Canada.
We refuse to believe that refuse is just refuse. Our landfill lets us find the worth in almost every kind of waste.
Handling Your Waste For You
All year round, our fleet of waste collection vehicles head out into the towns, villages, and hamlets of Beaver County, helping both rural and urban residents and businesses dispose of their waste through our top-tier collection services.
Our aim is to leave completely satisfied customers in our wake, both in terms of value and in the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their waste is being handled in the most professional and most productive way.
We’re pleased to offer our landfill services to both residential and commercial customers.
Environmental Stewardship and Safety
When it comes to the environment, Claystone always goes above and beyond what is expected of us. As we see it, basic regulatory standards are there to be surpassed, not met.
Our guiding metric of success is not simply toeing the line – it’s whether we hold true to our promise of creating the best possible tomorrow.
We apply this same attitude towards employee welfare. We are determined to make our workplace as safe and enriching as possible, and our efforts are paying off – thanks to our culture of safety, we recorded a Total Recordable Injury Rate of zero at all operating locations in both 2021 and 2022.
Claystone acknowledges that our business operates primarily on Treaty 6 territory, the traditional homelands of many First Nations Peoples, including the Cree, Saulteaux, Niisitapi (Blackfoot), Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. In all current and future operations, we seek to acknowledge the land, and all life within it. This includes honouring and working harmoniously with all Peoples of these and other lands, pursuing meaningful relationships and shared goals for success.
Claystone is an active part of the communities that surround us. We pride ourselves on our local roots and are always looking to give back in some way.
From returning millions of dollars to our municipal stakeholders through dividends to ongoing outreach and support for local non-profits and other organizations, we work hard to ensure we create a positive and lasting impact.
