The C&D Facility, based at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre, offers an environmentally friendly and convenient way to recycle construction materials. There are two options: mixed C&D recycling or segregated C&D recycling.

Effective February 4, 2019, due to landfill capping work, all incoming segregated loads of shingles, drywall, brush and trees received at the EWMC will be transferred directly to landfill.

The mixed C&D recycling program will not be affected.

Mixed C&D Recycling

Mixed loads of material are diverted from landfill and either sold to recycling processors or used in the City's operations.

Loads must not contain asbestos.

Please dispose of paint, adhesives, solvents and other hazardous materials at an approved facility for commercial waste.

Mixed loads should consist primarily of:

  • wood
  • metal
  • asphalt/concrete (maximum size 80x80 cm)
  • cardboard
  • clean film plastic
  • drywall (clean and unpainted)

Loads must be segregated in order to receive fees listed.

Concrete and asphalt are also accepted at Aggregate Recycling locations.
