COVID-19 Update: new guidelines are in place for disposing of household garbage, recycling and organics in order to protect the health and safety of our staff, the community and contract employees for waste collection.
Items are considered to be garbage if they can’t be:
- Placed in a blue recycle bag
- Placed in your green organics cart
- Disposed of at the Eco Centre (e.g. household hazardous waste)
Sort with Success
Not sure if an item can go in your black waste cart? Search for it here and learn if it can go in your black waste cart or if it has to go in your green organics cart or blue recycle bag instead.
Black waste carts are collected on a weekly basis. Each household is limited to the amount of garbage their black waste cart can hold (maximum 200 lbs) with the lid completely closed.
There are two sizes of black waste carts available to residents:
|Small Waste Cart
$25.25 per month
|Regular Waste Cart
$28.50 per month
If you would like to exchange your regular cart for a small cart at no charge, please call 780-962-7584 or email us . Be sure to provide us with the name of the person registered on the utility account, the property address, a contact telephone number as well as the subdivision and day you receive garbage collection. You can expect delivery of your new cart by the start of the next month.
If you have extra garbage, it will not be collected through residential waste collection. Instead, you can bring extra garbage to the Eco Centre for a fee. Large items such as furniture and old appliances can also be taken to the Eco Centre. A Large Item Pick Up event is held each year in the spring.
To report a broken or damaged cart, or missed collection, please call 780-962-7584.
