Collection Day

Waste Collection Day map for Spruce Grove

The collection day schedule PDf icon identifies the day of the week your household waste is picked up. For the most part, waste is picked up in the back alley in subdivisions with back alleys and on the front street in areas without alleys.

3 Streams

The City of Spruce Grove collects residential waste using a three-stream collection system.

  1. Garbage

    Black waste carts are collected weekly
  2. Organics

    Green organics carts are collected weekly from April 11th to November 18th and monthly from December to March
  3. Recyclables

    Blue bags are collected every week

The City issues green organics carts and black waste carts that are numbered and assigned to each property’s solid waste utility account. If you move, leave the carts for the next occupant. If your carts need to be repaired or replaced, or you have moved into a home that has no carts, call 780-962-7584. There is no charge to have your carts repaired.

Collection Requirements

Automated trucks are used to empty the carts which must be placed so the automated arm can pick them up. Proper cart placement  is required or your waste and/or organics may not be collected. The lid must be fully closed on your waste and/or organics cart, or it may not be collected.
