The citywide Edmonton Cart Rollout begins spring 2021.

Thank you for your continued participation in the Edmonton Cart Rollout demonstration phase, which will continue until the citywide rollout begins. You are helping lead the way for the future of waste in Edmonton.

Your feedback has helped us shape the citywide program, and you will notice some changes during the transition to cart-based collection for all of Edmonton. Changes include: 

  • Your green cart is now referred to as a food scraps cart
  • BPI and BNQ certified compostable bags can be used in the food scraps cart effective April 13
  • Yard waste can be set out in both double-ply paper bags and clear plastic bags for seasonal spring and fall collection
  • Variable monthly rates begin in October 2021, based on cart size
