Waste Collection

Weekly waste collection begins April 6 to accommodate increased volumes with more residents remaining at home.

Recycling pick-up will also be suspended temporarily beginning April 6. The City of Beaumont’s contractors made the difficult decision to stop the blue bag/blue bin recycling program to ensure the health and safety of their staff.

Residents have a couple of options for the disposal of recyclable material:

  • Paper and cardboard can be placed in your green organics bin. Some examples of items that can be placed in your organics bin are pizza boxes, paper towels, shredded paper, and newspapers. A good rule of thumb is if the material came from something that was once living, it probably goes in your organics bin. *Please note that coffee cups and other food packaging that has a plastic lining should go in your grey bin. For more information about what goes in the organics bin visit Other recyclables can be placed with your regular waste in the grey bin.
  • Residents can bring their recyclables to the Leduc and District Waste Management Facility free of charge. Please bring proof of residency in Beaumont.

Curbside large item collection is postponed. Large items can be taken to the Leduc and District Waste Management Facility, though fees may apply for some items. For more details, visit

We will continue to look for other longer-term solutions for recycling.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we work to ensure the health and safety of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic

The City of Beaumont activated its Emergency Coordination Centre on March 16 to allow the orderly planning and coordination of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure the appropriate resources are in place. Our top priorities are the health and safety of the public and city employees, as well as the continuity of services to residents.

The city and its contractors have plans in place that can be activated to ensure essential services are not disrupted if a significant number of employees become unavailable to work. Employees have received instruction on how to minimize the risk of transmitting coronavirus in the workplace and to the public, and enhanced hygiene, sanitization and prevention measures have been implemented throughout our facilities, workplaces and on Beaumont Transit.

During a pandemic, the city prioritizes:

  • Maintaining public safety services, e.g., fire, ambulance and police
  • Maintaining essential public works and municipal services, such as water treatment and delivery, garbage collection, and utilities
  • Working with Alberta Health Services to provide information and advice to the public
  • Closing public buildings when in the best interests of public safety and minimizing the spread of infection based on the recommendations of health officials
  • Coordinating and directing Family and Community Support Services and local non-government organizations’ support to our response

In addition, the City of Beaumont has agreements with neighbouring communities to share personnel capable of managing and maintaining essential services.
