Curbside Collection Services

Curbside collection of your garbage carts, blue bag recycling and seasonal yard waste runs Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

There are 5 different collection routes in Grande Prairie. Find out which day you can expect service. 

Garbage Carts

Collection begins at 7 a.m. on your collection day, so have your cart to the curb by then or even the night before!

Do not assume your cart will be collected at the same time every week - however, it should be collected by 5 p.m. If not, call us at 780.539.5950, send us a message on Facebook, or email solidwaste@aquatera.ca.

Cart placement

Please ensure your cart is placed at least one metre from parked vehicles, tagged garbage bags, trees, snow piles and blue bags, to ensure we can safely collect it. 

Extra bags 

If you have more bagged garbage than will fit in your landfill cart, the additional bags need a Bag Tag sticker attached to be eligible for curbside collection.  Bag Tag's for extra garbage can be purchased at the following locations for $3.00.

  • Aquatera Landfill 
  • Aquatera Head Office
  • Freson Brothers (North and South)
  • Safeway (North and South)

Blue Bag Recycling 

Recycling made easy! Place your paper, metal containers, cardboard and boxboard as well as hard plastics #1-#7 in your blue bags and leave them one metre from your garbage cart on your collection day! 

Just make sure that all items are free from grease and food particles, as we are unable to properly recycle them, risking them being diverted to the landfill. 

Yard Waste 

From April to November, Grande Prairie residents can place grass clippings, leaves and sawdust in transparent bags and place with your recycling on the curb. Small bundled branches can be placed alongside the bags as well.

Following Halloween, you can also leave your pumpkins with the seeds and the pulp or without, at the curb!  Just place them next to your blue bags, or place in a transparent yard waste bag, and let us do the rest.

We also collect Christmas trees at the curb for all customers who have an Aquatera landfill cart in Grande Prairie.
