Sorting Your Waste

Sorting your waste is simple using the resources the city has provided. On collection day, set out the carts according to the collection calendar for your neighbourhood. Please note that 2020 Collection Calendars will be available soon. 

Questions on where to sort your materials? Use our A-Z Sort Smart Database or contact the Eco-smart Hotline at 780-980-7107 or by email at

COMING SOON! The City will be introducing a NEW waste sorting and collection app in January 2020. It will work on both Android and Apple platforms and has great new features including customized reminders. Watch for details in early 2020!
