The City of Edmonton does not accept medical waste from commercial entities. Used personal protective equipment (PPE), such as single-use gloves and facemasks, can be disposed of with other landfill waste. To dispose of biomedical waste as defined under Bylaw 18590, please contact a medical waste management company for more information.
As part of the 25-year Waste Strategy, the City started winding down its commercial collection services as of October 1, 2019. The City is no longer accepting new Commercial Collection clients.
Waste Services will work with clients to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible. The City will continue to meet ongoing obligations under existing contracts.
City-owned sites will continue to receive collection services from City of Edmonton Waste Services.
Please note that the Edmonton Waste Management Centre will continue to accept waste and recycling from other haulers.
What Can Current Clients Expect?
Ninety days before service ends, clients received or will receive a notification letter. Letters were distributed in phases, between November 2019 and June 2020. This letter includes information about current services that will help clients solicit service quotes from new providers.
After receiving this letter, clients can contact Commercial Waste Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a preferred service cessation date to help ensure the transition to their new service provider is smooth and convenient.
Note: The collection of bins was postponed from March 16-June 1 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the City’s effort to reflect the direction of provincial and national authorities to manage the spread of the virus.
