June 17 is Waste Collector Appreciation Day. Waste Collectors work hard to ensure Edmonton is a safe and clean city that everyone can enjoy. You can show your appreciation year-round by learning how to keep your collector safe.
Used personal protective equipment (PPE), which includes face masks and gloves, cannot be recycled. Safely dispose of used PPE in a black bag with other landfill waste and make sure it’s securely tied off. This will help protect our crews when they are collecting and processing your waste.
The situation with COVID-19 is rapidly changing, as is the City of Edmonton’s response to the pandemic. At this time, the City is continuing to collect waste as normal.
