Apartment and Condo Waste Collection is Changing

Soon, all residents in apartments, condos, row houses and other multi-unit buildings will be able to sort food scraps and recycling from their garbage. The newly approved Waste Services Bylaw (20363) will help support this program, and residents, property managers and developers will be supported throughout the changes.

Waste from most apartments and condominiums in Edmonton is collected in large shared bins. On-site garbage and recycling bins help residents sort waste for collection. We call this system communal collection, as all residents put their waste in the same bins.
