Red Deer County transitioning from manual residential garbage collection to Automatic Collection

Automatic Collection is Coming

Red Deer County is transitioning from manual residential garbage collection to an Automatic Collection System in October


Carts are being delivered to existing customers in September


(RED DEER COUNTY) Starting next month in October, Red Deer County residents that currently have a Red Deer County residential garbage collection will transition to automatic garbage collection. Ergonomic carts will be delivered to existing customers by Environmental 360 Solutions Ltd. (E360S) in September with an information package included for residents to reference.


The first day to utilize the new carts will be the week of October 3-7, carts must be placed out the night before or by 7 a.m. the morning of your garbage day; collection schedules will continue to remain on the same.


“County residents will be receiving a service level improvement, with no additional costs to them, this new system will also reduce collection interruptions, “remarked Mayor Jim Wood, Red Deer County.


According to Environmental Services Manager Andy Treu, “The full implementation of the program is covered in the monthly fee residents already pay, the County is excited to embark in this improved level of service for county residents.”
