Garbage Removal City of Edmonton

Garbage Removal / May 4, 2023

City of EdmontonWe don’t know about you, but we’ve been loving this weather! With such a beautiful spring in Edmonton, more and more people are getting a head start on their spring cleaning. When you start to clean out your garage, shed or basement, are you aware of the different items you are able to recycle?

From organic waste, to old news papers and bottles, all the way to used oil and paint, these items can be recycled. When these items make their way into the regular garbage steam, it becomes very difficult to be able to sort them out. Often these items will end up being buried in the landfill and could potentially pollute the earth.

So What Should I Do?

The City of Edmonton has made large attempts to make recycling convenient for us! Throughout the City, there are many Eco Stations and Recycling Depots which are easily accessible to residents. They make recycling easy and also offer some great products. If you have a green thumb, you can support a great local recycling initiative called Second Nature, who offers an amazing compost product. These compost bags can be purchased at local retailers throughout the City, as well as at most Eco Stations. We almost forgot, you can also get free paint from most Eco Stations! Paint which has been recycled by other residents is availble free of charge. Since 1995, over 350, 000 litres of paint have been given away and reused rather than being disposed of!
