The Town of Edson is moving to curbside waste and organic pickup starting this May. This includes both household waste and organics collection and is contracted out to Can Pak Environmental Inc.
Basic Waste Collection Information
Residential garbage will be picked up on Wednesdays, every 2 weeks. The dividing line for pickup will be Edson Drive/51st Street. Those west of the boundary (West Route) will be picked up one week, and those east of the boundary (East Route) will be picked up the following week.
Organic pickup will be done weekly in the summer months, and every 2 weeks in the winter. West Route organics will be picked up on Mondays while East Route will be collected Tuesdays.
All pickup will be done on the front curb of homes, with the exception of homes along Highway 16, which will remain alley pickup for safety reasons. If there is no defined curb on your property, the bins are to be placed at the end of your driveway, or flush with the roadway.
Carts will be delivered at the end of April or early May. Once you have received your cart the program will commence for your property.
