Waste Management

Grey cart at curbThe Town of Ponoka provides curbside collection of recyclables, compostable material and household garbage.

Residents are encouraged to recycle and compost as much waste as possible through our curbside collection program. Not only does it divert waste from the landfill, it also saves on tipping fees at the landfill which can help offset future utility rate increases. 

To determine your regular scheduled day for waste pick up, please see:

Please have green and grey carts, as well as recycling at the curb for waste pick up by 7 a.m. on your designated collection day. 

The Town also operates the Waste Transfer Station which provides compost, household hazardous waste disposal and a number of recycling opportunities including for electronics and used motor oil.
