Edmonton: Let's Keep Talking Future of Waste

Edmonton: Let's Keep Talking Future of Waste

Last five days to continue the conversation about proposed changes to waste programs and services! We’re looking for input from the public to refine what we heard from residents last fall. Topics include:

  • Options for Curbside Collection (for single-unit residents),

  • Zero Waste Goal

  • Drop-Off Locations

  • Education Opportunities

  • Single use plastics and more.

Come chat with us again, or for the first time! Join us in person at our last public engagement session on April 14 and take our online survey until April 15, 2019.

For information and updates, visit edmonton.ca/futureofwaste or call 311 (780-944-5555 for TTY).

In Case You Missed It:

Download our WasteWise App or use the WasteWise tool online! If you are unsure about whether something goes in the recycling or garbage, search the item on our WasteWise App! It will also tell you your collection date, and there is a fun game to test your sorting skills.
