Note: Please do not dispose of hazardous waste in the garbage. The RM organizes a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Day every October. More information on HHW Day can be found on our social media and in announcements on the website.
The RM organizes recycling pickup for Emerald Park and residential subdivisions (including Jameson Estates and Casa Rosa) every other Thursday. Please have your cart out by 7:00 am. To learn more about Loraas Recycling Curbside pickup, click here.
Non-household recycling such as oil, metal, car parts, concrete, paint, construction debris, furniture, asphalt, chemicals, sod, stones and tires can not be disposed of in your carts.
Compost - Opt-in
The RM organizes compost pickup for Emerald Park and residential subdivisions (including Jameson Estates and Casa Rosa) every Friday on a seasonal basis: pickup is weekly from April through November, and monthly (on the first Friday of the month) from December through March. Please have your cart out by 7:00 am.
Compost service is an opt-in program that reduces the amount of waste going to the landfill (thus increasing the landfill's lifespan), reduces the amount of hazardous liquid, called leachate, entering the environment (Leachate: An Avoidable Threat to Human Health and the Environment), and allows food waste to be beneficially repurposed.
Commercial and Industrial Business Properties
The RM does not organize garbage, recycling, or compost pickup for private commercial or industrial business properties. As a business owner, you are responsible for securing garbage, recycling, and compost pickup through a private service supplier.
