The City of Edmonton aims to divert 90% of residential waste from landfill. But in order to meet that goal, changes need to be made to our current waste services programs. 

We've completed two phases of public engagement to get Edmontonians' thoughts on proposed changes. This input will be used to inform the recommendations in our 25-year Waste Strategy, which will be presented to Utility Committee and City Council for review and approval in the coming months.

​Edmonton's waste system includes much more than waste collection​.​ Other services include:

  • Eco Stations to drop-off your household hazardous waste and ​e-waste
  • A Reuse Centre, ​that accepts household items and makes them available for reuse
  • Community recycling depots located throughout the city
  • Big Bin events to drop off large items at no charge
  • Assisted Waste collection for residents with mobility challenges
  • Workshops and presentations to help residents reduce, reuse, recycle and compost
  • Volunteering opportunities through the Master Composter Recycler program or the Reuse Centre
  • Tours ​of​ the Edmonton Waste Management Centre
