Waste Services Learn more

Waste Services is funded through fees rather than property taxes. Please share your thoughts on Waste Services at the City of Edmonton.

The Waste Utility funds a number of facilities and services. This includes collecting items for garbage, recycling and reuse at the curbside, Eco Stations, neighbourhood recycling depots, Big Bin Events, the Reuse Centre and the Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC).

Additionally, the utility operates a number of processing facilities at the EWMC such as the Edmonton Composting Facility (ECF), Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), and the Waste-to-Biofuels Facility, to name a few. Although the ECF is only operating seasonally, a second composter called the Anaerobic Digestion Facility is expected to be in operation in late 2018.

Budget Simulator: Your Results

Please look at the black bar at the top of the page for the running total of your work to adjust the operating categories. If your proposed budget results in an overall increase in dollars per month, your proposed budget is in a DEFICIT.

This means that we have to balance the budget by decreasing program spending in one or more areas, finding more efficiencies, increasing property taxes, increasing user fees or increasing both property taxes and user fees.
