Town intends to re-open pool by mid-March
The leak repair work at the pool began this week. These repairs are scheduled to be complete by March 22 and the Town will continue to provide updates on the progress of the repair work up until completion.

The Town’s goal is to have the pool open and ready so that we can offer spring swimming lessons to the community.

Regular progress updates will be posted on  highriver.ca/aquatics-facility  in the coming weeks or, you can follow us on Facebook .
Recycling centre
Fun facts about the Town's recycling program
The Town of High River’s Recycling program is a diverse and dynamic service provided to the residents of High River. The Recycling Centre, located at 640 7 Street N.W. collects cardboard, mixed paper, small batteries, cell phones, tin cans, metal, hard plastics, soft plastics, newspapers/inserts and some electronics. 

The Town would like to increase collaboration with residents to improve the sorting and placing of recyclables at the Recycling Centre. Correct sorting and placing will save tax payer money, staff and customer time and reduce the risk of having loads rejected due to contamination.
