Holiday waste collection schedule

December 19, 2016 9:43 AM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

There will be no change to the regular schedule for garbage and Blue Box collection over the Christmas and New Year holidays.

To find your 2016 and 2017 garbage and Blue Box recycling collection schedule visit

Other reminders:

  • Remember to set out all materials before 7 a.m. for pickup on your regular collection day.
  • Residents are also reminded of the three unit limit for weekly garbage collection. A unit is defined as a garbage bag or can with a 100-litre capacity or maximum of 25 kg.
  • We also ask that residents do not put wrapping paper or Styrofoam in their blue boxes, as The City’s residential recycling program is currently unable to process these materials. 

For details about what is accepted in Blue Box call the Blue Line 403-340-BLUE (2583) or visit
