The City of Edmonton collects waste from over 400,000 single and multi-family homes.

In order to be collected:

  • All waste must be set out by 7am on the correct collection day.
  • Recycling must be set out in blue bags at least 1 metre away from carts.
  • Set out garbage in your black cart and food scraps in your green cart. No extra bags or containers will be collected.
  • Ensure your cart is set out on the right day. From November 9 - March 25, food scraps will be collected once every two weeks. Food scraps carts will be collected on the opposite week of the garbage cart.
  • Carts must be positioned and spaced according to the diagram on the side of your cart. Review these cart placement tips for more information.
  • Yard waste must be set out in kraft or double-ply paper bags, clear, transparent colour, orange or even halloween decoration plastic bags, or in bundles on seasonal yard waste collection days. Double-ply paper and clear bags are still preferred.
