Edson Landfill Update

Posted on January 21st, 2019

January 7th, 2019 - There are some changes at the Edson Landfill in response to ongoing fire issues.

For safety and environmental reasons, the Edson Landfill has been temporarily converted from a dry landfill to dry material transfer station operation. The restrictions will be in place as one dry cell is decommissioned and another is constructed. Please observe new signage within the site.


Regular materials such as tires, metals, white goods, residential waste, and small loads of dry material will continue to be accepted, however, commercial or large loads of dry material cannot be accepted due to capacity issues.

Should you currently have such loads, or are planning a large demolition project in the coming weeks, other modes of disposal will have to be considered. The nearest sites would be the Whitecourt/Woodlands Regional Landfill, Hinton Landfill, and Drayton Valley’s Aspen Waste Management Facility. Please contact these sites directly for disposal fees and operating hours.
