Holiday Collection Changes
There is no waste collection on Tuesday December 25, 2018 or Tuesday January 1, 2019.

If your waste collection falls on these dates, your waste will be collected on Monday December 24, 2018 and Monday December 31, 2018.

With residents’ help, Edmonton’s integrated and sustainable waste management system diverts over 50% of household waste from landfill through recycling and composting.

The organic portion of household waste is sorted out and composted at the Edmonton Waste Management Centre
