Your recycling program

New regulations in Alberta shift the financial and operational responsibility for recycling from municipalities to the organizations that produce and sell packaging and paper. 

Circular Materials is the producer responsibility organization that is responsible for implementing and managing the new extended producer responsibility recycling system in Alberta. 

The transition to this new framework will start on April 1, 2025. During this time, there will be no changes to your collection schedule or the materials you can recycle.
