Waste collection in multi-family complexes may differ between complexes. Some complexes use cart collection, some have communal collection areas, and some are operated by private collection companies.

Complexes that receive cart collection:

Find your collection day using our collection schedule and maps, and learn how to care for your carts.

When you place your waste out please ensure that:

  • there is a one metre clearance on both sides of the cart from any recycling bags, fences, mailboxes or any other objects
  • there are no vehicles parked on the street of your complex as the waste truck will need space to access the carts

Complexes that have communal collection areas:

These complexes will have a Wednesday collection day and will not receive roll-out carts. Waste and recycling will need to be separated. Most complexes with a communal shed should also have an organics cart.

All other multi-family complexes within Sherwood Park have commercial dumpster service. Your service schedule and routine will not change.

Complexes that receive private collection:

According to the  Waste Management Bylaw 39-2014 (314.7 KB)

  • All multi-family buildings and complexes in operation prior to March 2015 will need to have paper or cardboard recycling opportunities available to residents in addition to waste services. Any building receiving a building permit after march 2015 must have waste, commingled recycling and organic waste diversion opportunities available to all residents in the building or complex.
  • Multi-family complexes with private collection need to complete a Waste Diversion Compliance Plan (307.1 KB) and any commercial hauling companies operating in Strathcona County will need to complete a waste diversion compliance plan annually. This will help increase communication and help educate residents on waste and recycling processes.
  • If you would like your building to have an organic waste diversion program please contact the Waste Diversion Program Liaison at 780-416-6784.
