In response to COVID-19, the Recycling Depots may be reducing their hours and services. Please contact your Recycling Depot to confirm their hours of operation prior to dropping off your electronics, paint, tires or used oil materials. Ensure social distancing best practice when visiting a depot. Thank you and stay safe!

Municipalities and 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 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.

We recently celebrated our annual Collection Site Awards. Find out who won as the friendly competition to serve our province and community continues! View winners and learn more about the Awards.
