Residential recycling pickup is every second Friday. The recycle schedule can be viewed on the community calendar on our home page.
Residents are reminded to have your items on the front curb by 7:00 am. For more information on the Residential Blue Bag/Bin Recycling Program and what items are acceptable for recycling please contact the Town of Redwater office at 780-942-3519, stop by the office to pick up a brochure or click here to view the brochure of what can be recycled. Note that glass items are no longer recyclable.
WHY BLUE BAGS ONLY? Blue Bags are made from a recyclable material whereas some types of other bags are not. In addition, the blue color is a visual flag for our drivers, letting them know you have recyclables for pickup. Also, some communities have newspapers delivered in clear bags and may be mistaken for recycling if multiple types of bags are used. Bags keep the collectibles contained, both pre and post collection. Translucent blue bags allow for cursory inspection for non-recyclable items. Blue bags are available, in various sizes, from most grocery retailers.
The collection days are in the Local Events calendar.
- Newsprint and heavy paper inside one blue bag.
- Plastic and tin cans in another blue bag.
- Collapsed and bundled corrugated cardboard (secured under the blue bag(s)/bin). Note that cardboard pieces can be no larger than 60 cm x 90 cm (2 ft x 3 ft).
