Residents are responsible for removing items from their properties.
Find removal companies to help you recycle or dispose of your items.

Environmental problems associated with abandoned products
An increasing amount of natural land within Strathcona County is being covered by and contaminated with abandoned materials, both in rural and urban areas. Examples of materials include:
- farm and industrial equipment
- oil drums
- scrap metal
- spilled materials
Many of these items contain oil, diesel, battery acid and similar materials, which have the potential to leech into wetlands, watercourses, lakes and groundwater. This leeching negatively impacts water treatment costs, biological health and species diversity and even public health.
