Since initiating a curbside recycling program in 1988, Edmonton has become a global leader in effective urban waste management. Today, over 90% of Edmontonians voluntarily participate in the City's recycling programs.
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 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.
