Municipalities & Indigenous Communities
Municipalities, First Nations and Métis Settlements as well as waste authorities and commissions—collectively referred to as municipalities—are the front line of the Recycling Programs. They have set up approximately 440 electronics, paint, tire and used oil materials recycling depots (collection sites) to date, ensuring that wherever you live or do business in Alberta, there is a depot nearby.
