Waste and Recycling

Transfer Station Service Changes
As construction begins at the Transfer Station and Recycle Depot, residents can expect the following service changes:
  •  Effective Immediately: Screened top soil will not be available on site this year. Please call your local greenhouse or compost supplier to inquire about available supply.
  • Effective June 1: Branches and yard waste drop-off is for Fort Saskatchewan residents ONLY; small quantities only. Residents will need to show ID verifying their address. Residents arriving without an ID will be turned away.
    • Residents must call the waste hotline (780-992-6218) ahead of time if a contractor is coming with yard waste from their property.
    • Contractors without prior confirmation will not be permitted to drop off materials.
    • Contractors disposing of materials on behalf of a Fort Saskatchewan resident must only bring materials from that pre-approved property.
  • Effective August 1: To help ensure operations continue efficiently throughout construction, the Recycle Depot will no longer be open 24/7. The Recycle Depot and Transfer Station will be open 9am-5pm, 7 days a week, and closed on statutory holidays.
