Correctly sorting and setting out waste in apartments and condos is a shared responsibility. Learn more about your role and how to help support waste collection in your building.
Put your garbage in your building's brown garbage bin
Put your recyclables in your building's blue recycling bin. Recyclables can be placed directly into the bin - no blue bags are required
Don’t have a recycling bin? Speak to your property manager or condo board. They can call our Customer Support Centre at 780-496-5698 to discuss getting one. All multi-unit buildings are entitled to a recycling bin. You can also take your recyclables to your nearest Recycling Depot or Eco Station.
Flatten boxes. This saves space in your bin and ensures there is enough room for everyone’s recyclables.
Furniture and large, bulky waste needs to be taken to an Eco Station or the Edmonton Waste Management Centre. Waste dumped beside bins will not be picked up by collectors, and may lead to missed collections or extra costs to property managers.
If your unwanted items are in good condition, give them away, list them online, or check the Reuse Directory to find a local non-profit that accepts them.
Report a Problem
If you see something wrong with your building’s waste collection, like an overfilled bin or a vehicle blocking access to your property’s bins, please contact your property manager.
Illegal dumping is a significant problem. If you see someone illegally dumping waste, record as much information as you can and report it through 311. Large items placed beside a bin will not be collected.
