The City of Edmonton collects waste from over 400,000 single and multi-family homes. Never miss a collection by ensuring the following:

  • All waste must be set out by 7am on the correct collection day.
  • Set out garbage in your black cart, food scraps and organics in your green cart, and recycling in blue bags. No extra bags or containers will be collected.
  • Ensure carts have 1 metre of clearance and the lid is fully closed. Review these cart placement tips for more information.
