Pickup Times


Automated Curbside Pickup

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!
