Big Bin Events allow residents to dispose of household items too large for regular collection at no charge.

Wearing a mask or face covering is a reasonable precaution for some, but is not required of patrons. Please be courteous and maintain a distance of 2 metres if someone asks you to.

The City of Edmonton is hosting Big Bin events for household items that can’t be set out for regular waste collection. Seven weekend events will be held in various locations throughout the City.

City residents will be able to drop off items such as old couches, chairs, mattresses, and appliances free of charge. Computers and other electronics will also be accepted for recycling.

Do not bring household hazardous waste like paint, varnish, household cleaners or batteries. Please take those items to an Eco Station.
