Over 90% of Edmontonians voluntarily participate in the City's recycling programs. We've come a long way since our curbside recycling program began in 1988.

Paper, newspaper, boxes, tin cans, glass jars and bottles, plastic containers and bags are all acceptable items for any of our recycling programs. 

Note: Please do not put shredded paper in your blue bag or apartment blue bin. Take it to a Recycling Depot or put it in your garbage.

Still not sure what goes in the recycling, garbage or to the Eco Station? Take the guesswork out of sorting your waste by using the WasteWise tool.


With a convenient Blue Bin recycling dumpster it is easier than ever for apartment and townhouse residents to recycle.
Community recycling depots are a convenient way to dispose of recyclables from your home or small business.
