Waste Services plays an integral role in the day-to-day lives of Edmontonians and provides efficient waste management services for the City. The Utility collects, processes and disposes of waste for almost 400,000 residential households and various non-residential customers.  

The budget for the Waste Services Utility reflects the strategic direction and initiatives identified in the 2019-2022 Waste Services Business Plan presented to Utility Committee on August 23, 2018.

Waste Services is operated as a public utility and is governed by City Council’s Utility Committee with oversight provided by an independent Utility Advisor. All residential waste services are covered through the monthly utility rate charged to residents and property taxes are not used for any waste services residents receive. The Utility operates under Council-approved Fiscal Policy.
