If you have a registered secondary suite on the same property, request to share a set of carts (one 240L garbage cart and one 120L food scraps cart) with the suite and save on your utility bill.
Please note: the account holder is responsible for any waste utility rate(s) associated with carts. Residents participating in the cart sharing program only pay one monthly utility rate.
Your new rate takes effect as of the date your cart is exchanged or removed. If this is partway through a billing cycle, you will be charged for the old rate until the cart exchange, and the new rate after.
The default cart set is 1 large (240L) garbage cart and 1 small (120L) food scraps cart.
Food scraps carts are only offered in the 120L size.
Property owners of suites that are not registered with the City (by way of a development permit) will first need to obtain a development approval for their suite. Please contact 311 or visit edmonton.ca/secondarysuites for further details.
Property owners who have registered with the City via Development Services but haven’t registered their secondary suites with Waste Services will need to call 780-496-5698 to register. A monthly waste utility rate will apply to each unit once you register your suite with Waste Services.
Waste account holders who pay for the separate monthly utility fee for their secondary suites can submit a request. A waste account holder is the individual who pays the monthly waste utility rate noted on the EPCOR bill. As the garbage cart size impacts the monthly utility rate amount, only the waste account holder can submit this request. If you are not the account holder, please contact that individual to submit the request. If each unit has a separate account holder, each will need to be listed on the application form.
Garden suites are eligible for the Secondary Suites Cart Sharing program, however duplexes and other similar dwelling configurations are not.
No, one account will be billed the utility fee for this service. In most cases, there is only one account. However for homes with two accounts, one of the accounts must be designated as the primary account and will receive the utility bill.
Property owners with legal secondary suites who have registered their secondary suites with Waste Services and pay the separate monthly waste services fee for their secondary suites can request that all suites on one property share one set of carts.
You will receive an email from Waste Services after a review of your application is completed, indicating whether your application has been approved or not.
Yes, please contact 311 to cancel that service.
