Waste Collection Program Start Date

Posted on August 14th, 2018

Edson, Alberta, August 14th, 2018 – The Town of Edson is excited to announce the start of our new Waste Collection program.  GFL Environmental has been contracted to carry out the program, which is curbside, automated, household waste and organics collection.

The program begins September 3rd with the first organic pickup.  Routes and schedules will be released soon!

In the meantime, if you have yet to receive your bins, please let the Town of Edson know through our mobile app, Facebook page, or calling our Public Works Office at 780-723-6461.

As discussed in the August 14th, 2018 Committee of the Whole meeting, it is anticipated there will be a rate increase due to the switch in contractors. This increase will not be implemented until 2019 with more details coming soon.

More information on the program, including a list of acceptable organics, bin placement guidelines, and frequently asked questions can be found on our website at www.edson.ca/curbside.


Since this release there have been numerous questions regarding the program, fee increase, and Council involvment. Please see the following document to view some responses to those questions.
