The City of Camrose provides weekly waste collection to all single family, duplex, triplex and four-plex dwellings. All multi-family units with more than four units, and all commercial, industrial and institutional properties must make their own arrangements for waste collection and disposal. They have the option of doing it themselves, or using one of several private contractors who provide this service in Camrose.
The City retains a private contractor to provide residential waste collection in the city. If you have any questions about your pickup service, please contact Progressive Waste Solutions directly at 780.679.0409.
All residential properties receiving waste collection services are charged three fixed monthly fees. The fees are charged each month, whether or not the service is used in any particular month.
The Residential Garbage Collection Fee (GACF) is the contract fee charged by Waste Services Inc. The City periodically tenders this service to ensure that the best service is provided for the most economical price.
The Compostable Materials Collection (COMP) covers residential collection of compostable materials for single family, duplex, and fourplex dwellings that already utilize City waste collection services.
In Camrose, waste collection and disposal is treated as a utility, and is totally funded by user fees charged on utility bills. No tax revenue subsidizes these programs.
