Garbage and recycling

Paper bags for extra yard waste

Extra yard waste collection is October 5 to 9 on your regular collection day. Extra yard waste must be placed in paper yard waste bags or reusable containers for collection. Clear plastic bags will no longer be accepted.

Utilities services remain operational

In light of recent direction received from public health authorities in Alberta on COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus), Strathcona County has implemented additional preventative measures to limit the spread of infection and, ultimately, to keep our employees, customers, community and visitors healthy and safe.

Utilities will continue to operate essential services (water and sewer services, waste collection and the Community Energy System) during this time.

Please note:
Our main office at 370 Streambank Avenue is closed to the public. Questions can be directed to 780-467-7785 (water and wastewater) or 780-449-5514 (waste).

Customer billing is closed to the public. Call 780-464-8273 for assistance.

Residents facing financial hardship can request a 3 month deferral of their utility bills.

Waste and recycling at side of road

Our waste collection services include a curbside recycling program, organics collection and rollout collection carts. Through our Green Routine collection system, you can help us build and maintain a healthy community.

Recycling changes in effect

As of September 10, 2018, only blue bags with correctly sorted items will be picked up.

If your blue bag isn’t picked up, don’t worry! Look for the sticker: – it will note what needs to be removed or changed. Once you’ve done so, your bag can go out for collection the following week. Thank you for working with us over the past few months.  

We understand that change takes time. Learn more about the recycling changes and Green Routine 2.0.
