Crematorium Development in Prince Rupert Community

There is a proposed rezoning application in place for the property at 11406 – 119 Street, which includes the development of a crematorium directly across the street from residences. The Prince Rupert community have raised concerns regarding odours and other emissions affecting health.

If you would like to support residents in opposing this application, please write to City Council.
The matter is on the agenda for Tuesday’s public hearing (agenda item 3.2).

To contact City Council write to council@edmonton.ca More information can be found on the Prince Rupert Community League website.


New Waste Collection System

The way we sort, set out and collect waste is changing in Edmonton. The City will soon be providing all single-unit and some multi-unit homes witha garbage cart, a food scraps cart, and a food scraps pail.

New carts will be delivered prior to August 3rd when cart collection service will officially begin. Do not set your cart out for collection before August 3rd.

This new system will include 4 collection services:
– Garbage will be collected every 2 weeks year-round.
– Food Scraps will be collected weekly from spring to fall, and every 2 weeks in the winter.
– Recycling will be collected as before, once a week in blue bags provided by the resident.
– Yard Waste will be collected twice in spring and twice in fall in clear plastic bags or double-ply paper yard waste bags and/or bundles wrapped in biodegradable twine.


We are excited to announce that 2 of our best-loved programs are now available online!

If you’ve been following our Social Media accounts you may have noticed on the last Sunday of the month we are sharing some SAFETY TIPS for our community!

It is still dark for almost 12 hours a day this time of year a quick and simple way to help with community safety is to leave your porch light on! Not only is this a deterrent for anyone looking to cause mischief, but it also helps those walking their pooches late at night to see a bit better!
