Keeping our city clean is a shared responsibility.

If you choose to pick up litter on public property around where you live, work or play, please be safe and follow these safety guidelines

If you’re interested in picking up litter in your community, you may access free litter clean up supplies or sign up to formally volunteer at a Litter Pick Up Event or visiting a Big Bin Event to dispose of large items.

Community Bin Grants

Each spring, dozens of Edmonton community groups apply for help to get rid of any large, bulky items cluttering up the back alleys, streets or other areas in their neighbourhoods. Under the Community Bin Grant Program, the City offers funds on a first-come, first-served basis that can be used for bin rentals (including the truck, driver and disposal costs) and truck rentals to drive through the area and collect large items.
