Big Bin Events allow residents to dispose of household items too large for regular collection at no charge.

Alberta Health Services safety guidelines will be in place. Residents are required to wear masks outside of their vehicles and must be able to unload their own vehicles. Expect longer than usual wait times.

The City of Edmonton is hosting Big Bin events for household items that can’t be set out for regular waste collection. Seven weekend events will be held in various locations throughout the City.

City residents will be able to drop off items such as old couches, chairs, mattresses, and appliances free of charge. Computers and other electronics will also be accepted for recycling.

Do not bring household hazardous waste like paint, varnish, household cleaners or batteries. Please take those items to an Eco Station.


Eco Stations will hold free drop-off weekend events for residential waste only in June and September 2021. Visit for more information.
