As usual, extreme temperatures have affected the routes lately. We start in the morning at 8 and when it gets hot, we go out later in the day when it cools, and again in the early morning hours. Please stay hydrated!!!
We have made some permanent changes and are taking new precautionary measures to safely collect recycling. Most Recycling we collect will be sent to processors because the Recycle Depot and Bottle Depot may close again. Empties for all Camrose residents is now picked up free of charge, for the duration of the pandemic (COVID-19 Coronavirus). Just let us know where to pick them up.
City Hall reopened the recycle depot in June, 2020 and rejected Kingsssdotca Inc.'s proposal to operate it after it was closed. Regardless of what happens to any recycle center in Alberta, your recycling will always have value to us.
Please note that only clear glass, and batteries have been added to this page since the reopening of the recycle depot. Cereal boxes, Detergent boxes and Paper tubes are again categorized as cardboard and must be made as flat as possible.
All cardboard must be separated from any other items for recycle. Please use a box or a bag to contain it. Cut large cardboard so it is less than 1 square meter.
Loose tin lids, single use paper coffee/soda cups, and Tetra Paks or cartons which contained anything other than juices or milks will be rejected and left behind in your Bluebox when you forget. Go to How It Works below for more details. The good news is Kingsssdotca Inc. will eventually be accepting these items for making PaperPlasticWood products, and we will let you know at that time.
NOW OFFERING TO ALL CAMROSE RESIDENTS FREE PICKUP of cordless and AC appliances that have ELECTRIC motors AND any eCycle stuff (electronic things). When you unsure, just ask us.
Paper pet food bags are now accepted again. Please reuse the plastic ones.
When something is left behind in your Bluebox, it is usually garbage and MUST be EMPTIED outbefore your next pick-up.

How It Works for REGULAR/DOORSTEP SERVICE
Everyone take appropriate measures so your stuff doesn't blow away!
The BLUEBOX is for heavier items and must be in plain view so the driver knows where to stop.
25 LBS. is the maximum single weight of a box/bag. When you have an unusual load of stuff, add one more box or contact us for Special pickup.
We take more for recycling, than any other company
Note: When using Regular/Doorstep/SSS Service, the following items are to be separated in bags knotted shut.
Rinse all your containers, and toss out the caps and lids unless you see the recycle logo.
When you have 3 or less of a small item (tin or plastics), wait till you have more to fill a bag.
Please, contact us @ 780-608-5723 when you’re unsure about any of this information!!!
Notes: Shredded Paper always goes into a separate plastic bag knotted shut.
Always let us know ASAP when your Bluebox goes
missing. We are committed to providing you with the highest level
of customer satisfaction possible, so please let us know if you have any
questions or concerns, we'd love to hear from you.
Please remember, if your recycling is not picked up on your regular day, stay calm. You may have just been missed and when it is still out there at noon the following day, call us ASAP, so we can make the pickup.
