The way Edmontonians sort and manage waste at home is changing.
Edmonton is transitioning to cart-based waste collection, with separate collection of food scraps and seasonal yard waste.
Cart Collection has Started - Check Your Schedule!
Carts are now being picked up in some areas, but you should check before using yours. Most residents will have a gap between when they receive their carts, and when they should start using them.
- Consult the new collection calendar and city map that came with your carts
- Search your address in WasteWise to view your new collection schedule and sign up for reminders
Do not set out your carts until your first scheduled cart collection date. Until then, continue to set out your waste as you currently do.

Sorting waste — what goes where?
Request cart maintenance or swap your garbage cart size after you’ve received your carts.
Is your food scraps pail broken? Your food scraps pail has a 5-year manufacturer warranty against cracking, deterioration, rotting, warping, discoloration and other defects in material workmanship. If your food scraps pail is damaged from regular use, bring it to an Eco Station for a replacement.
