The City of Edmonton recycles concrete and asphalt from household renovations, 
construction projects and private demolition. This service provides an economical 
source of aggregates that are used to build and maintain the City's roadways.

2018 Program Changes

Please be advised that effective May 1, 2018, the following changes will take effect:

  • The Southeast Recycling Site will only accept concrete/rubble directly from residents.
  • The West Recycling Site will only accept concrete/rubble directly from residents and City of Edmonton associated work. Concrete/rubble from non-City projects will not be accepted. 

These changes shall be in effect for the 2018 season and are due to excessive inventory at both sites.
