Turn In Your Waste at the New Northeast Eco Station

Kennedale Eco Station

The City of Edmonton is celebrating the opening of the Kennedale Eco Station located in the northeast of the City. Edmontonians now have four Eco Stations where they can take their household hazardous waste and electronics for free.

“Edmonton is a leader in integrated waste management and the opening of a fourth Eco Station shows the City’s commitment to protecting the environment while providing convenient services to residents,” said Councillor Tony Caterina. “Edmontonians have been bringing their hazardous waste to Eco Stations for 20 years and now it’s even easier.”

Eco Stations are comprehensive waste drop-off facilities where residents can take their old electronics, appliances and hazardous waste such as leftover paint, light bulbs and batteries. Bulky items not suitable for collection and household recyclable items are also welcomed.

“We are inviting residents to take advantage of the Eco Stations and turn in their household hazardous waste and electronics for free so that they can be recycled or disposed of properly,” said Councillor Caterina. “This type of waste should never go in the garbage because it’s harmful to the environment.”

The new Kennedale Eco Station, located at 53 Street and 127 Avenue, also has a Reuse Area. Like the Reuse Area at the Ambleside Eco Station, these facilities give residents an opportunity to pick up, for free, large reusable items such as chairs and tables that have been dropped off by other residents.
