Solid Waste & Recycling Collection


Update - We are pleased to announce that our solid waste contractor will resume recycling pick-up starting July 6, 2020. We would like to thank residents for their patience, understanding, and cooperation during this time.

Blackfalds provides this collection every Tuesday through Friday of each week, including statutory holidays, with the exception of Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Collection services are completed by a private collection contractor.

Carts must be placed out by 7 am on collection day and be brought back inside the property line following collection. All materials must be placed inside of the carts; additional boxes, bags or other items outside of the carts will not be collected. Please see the Cart Usage brochure and the Cart Collection Schedule map for full details on how to use your carts and to collection day for your residence.

See List of clean Recycling Materials accepted by the contractor.

Yard Waste

Between the months of May and October weekly collection of yard waste also takes place on your designated collection day. Please see the Yard Waste handout for details on this service.

Yard waste must be tagged with a Yard Waste label that is visible to the driver.
Free labels are available at the Town Office, located in the mail box at the front doors.
