Beaumont's Waste Program
Styrofoam Now Accepted at Leduc's Eco Station
As part of a one-year pilot project, the Eco Station in Leduc will now accept white block Styrofoam for recycling.
This service enhancement will allow residents to drop off limited quantities of Styrofoam at the Eco Station for free during regular hours of operation. A mobile processing unit that uses new technology will collect the Styrofoam from the Eco Station one or two times per month. For full details, check out Leduc's page HERE.

What Our Waste Program Is About
The City of Beaumont focuses on our waste program being Smart, Savvy, and Green. We work hard to ensure that we do our part for the environment and our community. That is why Beaumont Waste Services encompasses a curbside collection program that includes waste carts, organics carts, and recycling.
How Can You Help?
- Reduce your shopping waste by avoiding prepackaged fruits and vegetables, as well as single-wrapped or single-use products.
- Evaluate what you do waste and create your own personalized waste-reduction plan.
- Avoid buying or consuming products that have excess packaging.
- Start a game with your family to see who can waste the least for a chance to win a fun family prize.

Leduc Yard Waste Transfer Station
If you are not able to make it to our facility during the designated times, as a resident of Beaumont you are able to dispose of extra waste at the Leduc & District Waste Management Facility free of charge. Residents are permitted to dispose of an extra 1 tonne (1000 kgs) of household waste per year at the facility. You can also bring yard waste to the Yard Waste Transfer Station in Leduc.
Beaumont Hazardous Waste Drop Off Event
Due to current restrictions and regulations, our Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Event will be postponed until further notice. Our new date is going to be sometime in August. Once we have further details we will officially update all resource pages and announce the date to the public via all social channels. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
On August 14th we will be implementing a Hazardous Waste Drop Off at our Operations facility located at 24130 Township Rd 510. This will allow residents to bring specific items for proper disposal. The initiative will run from 8:30am to 2:00pm, MST. Full details and information will follow as we finalize key components.
In the past we have offered rain barrels and compost bins for sale during this initiative. Alternatively, due to changes in our operating plan, these bins will not be offered. However, they are available at Home Depot and Home Hardware stores. You can also purchase these bins online and have them delivered to your home through your preferred online retailer.
If you are not able to make it to this drop off event, please note that you can drop off tons of different approved items at the Leduc Eco Station year round. Full details and information can be found HERE.
Since 2004, Albertans have been recycling their end-of-life TVs and computer equipment. Starting September 1, 2020, that list has expanded under a two-year pilot project on how to properly recycle these items safely and securely. Example of these products include Small Appliances, Audio/Visual, Telecom Devices, Power/Air Tools, and Games, Toys, and Music.
Alberta Recycling has put together a website with full details, products, collection sites, and facts regarding these items. Full details can be found HERE.
A full list of eligible items and details on this initiative can be found HERE. We have also broken it down along with linking PDF resources:
