Construction and Demolition waste material is accepted for recycling at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre.

About the Service

Mixed C & D recycling

A recycling facility for mixed construction and demolition (C&D) waste began operation at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre in January 2012.

The mixed C&D recycling facility provides project owners, construction companies, homebuilders and haulers with competitively priced options to divert material from landfill and further their own and Edmonton’s reputation for being “green”.

The facility uses mechanical and manual sorting to separate mixed loads of material into various re-usable commodities.

Bring in your mixed loads of material and leave it to us to do the sorting. To qualify as a mixed load, approximately 80% of the load must be made up of typical C&D materials.

Materials accepted

Segregated C&D recycling

Segregated material that will continue to be accepted:

Drywall - unpainted only
Metals - ferrous and non-ferrous
Wood - unpainted, untreated dimensional lumber; plywood; OSB
Asphalt shingles - nails ok; no other materials
