The City of Edmonton collects garbage and recycling from over 400,000 single and multi-family homes. This waste material is then taken to the Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC) for proper processing and disposal.
Please separate your garbage from your recycling.
- Food waste
- Smaller worn-out household items and yard waste
- Plastic and styrofoam packaging
Please put your recyclable items in your blue bag such as:
- Tin cans
- Plastic jars and bottles
Household hazardous waste and bulky items should be taken to an Eco Station or to the EWMC for proper disposal. Any sharp objects must be placed in a box labelled ‘sharp.’ All bags must not weigh more than 20kg.
Garbage and blue bags must be out by 7am.
