Waste, Organics & Recycling
The Curbside Cart Collection & Recycling Program helps our community keep tonnes of material out of the landfill every year — and that helps Leduc meet its residential waste diversion targets, which means a cleaner, greener environment for us and for future generations.
The program is made up of these three streams:
- Black cart for regular household waste
- Green cart for organics
- Blue bags for recycling
What materials are accepted in the program?
- Waste – Any household items that aren’t organic or can’t be recycled
- Organics – All food and yard waste, shredded paper and many items made from natural materials. These materials are sometimes referred to as "compost" or "food scraps."
- Recyclables – Rigid plastic containers, aluminum and tin cans, paper products, flattened cardboard and non-glass beverage containers
What materials are not accepted?
Never put household hazardous waste or electronic waste in your collection your carts. These materials can be safely disposed of at one of these facilities provided by the City of Leduc:
Place your carts and blue bags out for collection by 7 a.m. on your collection day. Curbside collection uses different trucks for each type of material and will come by at different times throughout the day. Collection will be complete by 7 p.m. Pull your carts in at the end of the day. The carts are collected by a truck with an automated arm that requires 1 metre clearance on all sides and above each cart. Carts can be emptied only if the 1 metre clear zone is observed. This is the golden rule of cart placement.
