Garbage FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I request a change in size for my Brown Garbage Cart?

To request a change in size, repair or replacement, please contact the City of St. Albert’s Utilities Services at 780-459-1520, Option 2, or complete the online request form at Change, Repair or Replace Carts.

Please allow a minimum of three weeks to change out the size of the carts.

Can I get an additional Brown Garbage Cart?

The City of St. Albert encourages residents to make use of the curbside organics and recycling programs to divert as much waste as possible; however households can request an additional Brown Garbage Cart if the largest sized cart (240 L) is insufficient.

These households can receive an additional 240 L Brown Garbage Cart. There is a $50.00 administration fee for this request, as well as an additional charge of $10.04 per month on the utility bill. Please contact the Utilities Services for more information.

Where does the City of St. Albert's garbage go?

The City of St. Albert sends residential garbage to the landfill at Roseridge Waste Management Services Commission (RWMSC), east of Morinville. Please note that residents of St. Albert cannot use RWMSC to discard waste personally.

What if I have a large item I need to dispose of?

The City of St. Albert currently holds events such as Curbside Large Item Pick Up and Large Item Drop-Off, which accepts resident’s large items that will not fit inside the Brown Garbage Cart. For more information about the large item events check our Seasonal Waste Programs.

The City of Edmonton's Eco Stations and Edmonton Waste Management Centre also accepts residental waste for disposal. For more information about acceptable items and fees, please visit the City of Edmonton's Waste Drop-off Facilities page.

My garbage was missed. Who should I call?

If your Brown Garbage Cart was missed, please contact the Public Works Department at 780-459-1557. Please leave your Brown Garbage Cart out in the normal collection area until the garbage has been collected.

My Brown Garbage Cart is damaged/broken. How can I have it repaired?

The City of St. Albert will assist residents in the repairing or replacement of their Brown Garbage or Green Organics Carts if they have been damaged by the collection vehicles. If your cart is damaged, please contact the City of St. Albert’s Utilities Services at 780-459-1520, Option 2, or complete the online request form at Change, Repair or Replace Carts.

Please note, if a cart is intentionally damaged or damaged due to negligence, the homeowner may be charged in accordance to the City of St. Albert’s Residential Solid Waste Management Bylaw (Bylaw 24/2011).

I am moving, can I take the carts with me?

No. The Brown Garbage and Green Organics Carts are assigned to the household and cannot be removed or taken when moving. If the carts are removed, the former home owner could be responsible to reimburse the City for the cost of the replacement carts. Please leave the carts for the new tenants.
