Turn Them In and Win!

Spring has sprung! All around the city, Edmontonians are cleaning out closets, basements, and garages.

There are so many great places in Edmonton that accept unwanted items for reuse, including charities, second hand shops, and the Reuse Centre, of course!

But do you know what to do with items that aren't in good condition, or that aren't accepted for reuse?

The City of Edmonton is asking residents to take household hazardous waste and items too large for regular garbage collection to an Eco Station.

Eco Stations are convenient waste drop-off facilities for all types of residential waste and they play an essential role in Edmonton’s integrated waste management system.

Items such as old electronics, paint, batteries and cleaning products can be turned in for free at one of the City’s four Eco Stations where they will be recycled and disposed of properly. This type of waste is harmful to the environment if not handled correctly and should not go into the garbage.

Eco Stations also accept large and bulky items such as sofas, mattresses, tables and yard waste which cannot be set out for regular collection. Please note that fees will apply for these items.

To say thank you for disposing of your household waste properly, Eco Stations are giving away movie passes from April 25 to May 9. Visit an Eco Station for your daily chance to win.
