Edmonton has entered a cold snap. Everything is frozen-- and that may include the contents of your green cart.


When organics freeze to the inside of your cart, it creates a mess and makes it difficult or impossible for collectors to fully empty your cart.


Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help loosen the scraps, keep your cart clean and ensure waste collectors can fully empty the cart! Visit edmonton.ca/cartrollout for help.


If your waste was set out incorrectly, you may find your carts were not collected and a tag was attached to one of your carts.


The tag shows the issue that prevented collection, and how to correct it. Please take steps to address the issue and set out your carts correctly next time. Carts set out incorrectly may not be collected until the next collection day, as identified on your collection calendar.
