Edson COVID-19 Response
The latest information from the Town of Edson's response to the COVID-19 situation.
The Town of Edson has moved to a curbside waste collection system. GFL Environmental has been contracted to carry out the program, which is curbside, automated, household waste and organics collection.
For more information on this programs success and other environmental actions taken by the Town of Edson, visit our Green Initiatives page!
The Edson and District Recycling Society has everything you need for convenient organics collection. Stop by and purchase a kitchen catcher and compostable certified bags. Each kitchen catcher or box of 90 bags is just $10! They also have stickers and brochures with helpful info.
Certified compostable bags can also be purchased at most local grocery or hardware stores.
Take the following quiz to help understand how to best sort all your waste materials.
There’s a handful of prizes to be won including a backpack with electronics, battery packs/portable speakers, and some toy trucks for the kids!
If you have not received your new bins please contact Edson Public Works at 780-723-6461.
Mobile home parks and apartment buildings are not a part of the new program as they are currently considered commercial and have private garbage collection services.
Generally, the bins will not experience issues with sticking or freezing (depending on the materials). The trucks are equipped with hopper cameras to ensure bins are being emptied properly.
As new development occurs in the Town of Edson, GFL will deliver new bins.
Please keeps bins off the street, boulevard, or sidewalk on non-pickup days.
Store it neatly on your property, preferably in your backyard or beside a building, accessory building, or a fence.
