Apartment and Condo Waste Collection is Changing

The way we sort waste in Edmonton is changing. Soon, all residents in apartments, condos, row houses and other multi-unit buildings will be able to sort food scraps and recycling from garbage. Food scraps collection could begin as early as 2023. Residents, property managers and developers will be supported throughout these changes. More information will be available soon.

Waste from most apartments and condominiums in Edmonton is collected in large shared bins. Brown bins are used for garbage, while blue bins are used for recycling. We call this system communal waste collection, as all residents put their waste in the same bins.
