Collection Site Awards

Since 2008, Alberta Recycling has been recognizing the work of registered electronics, paint and tire collection sites through the Collection Site Award of Excellence.

Alberta Recycling’s Field Services Inspector conducts annual inspections of all registered electronics, paint and tire collection sites. These inspections help ensure sites meet Program requirements and also enable Alberta Recycling to select the award winners.
