Waste collection calendars are now paperless
March 19, 2024

The City is completing its transition to paperless waste collection calendars to advance waste reduction efforts. Printed calendars will no longer be broadly distributed to Edmontonians receiving curbside collection. In preparation for going fully paperless, the City has encouraged residents to opt-out of receiving a printed waste collection calendar. Since 2016, calendars and other important waste collection information have been available at residents’ fingertips through the WasteWise app, or at edmonton.ca/WasteWise

The City is committed to supporting Edmontonians through this transition and will continue to help ensure all residents can easily keep track of their collection schedule.
  • For assistance downloading or using WasteWise, residents can visit edmonton.ca/wastewise or call 311.
  • Through a partnership with Edmonton Public Library (EPL), Edmontonians can visit any branch for assistance in downloading and using WasteWise, or printing their waste collection calendar. There is a nominal fee at the library of $0.10 for black and white printing, and $0.50 for colour.
  • Residents can print their own calendars online at edmonton.ca/wastewise or call 311 to request a printed calendar, free of charge.

Currently, over 220,000 people use WasteWise to view their curbside collection calendar, search what waste goes where and receive timely waste related reminders and information. WasteWise is available in multiple languages and is easy to use through smartphone applications and the City’s website. 

By using digital calendars, Edmontonians help the City reduce the environmental impact and cost associated with printing and mailing collection calendars. By working together, we are advancings towards climate goals and are preserving our environment for current and future generations.
