garbage and recycling

Wildlife-proof Bins

All waste bins in Jasper are wildlife-proof. Dispose of household garbage in the large bins that are located in all residential and commercial areas in Jasper.

What can I recycle in Jasper? 

Glass and Tin

Glass jars and tin cans are accepted. Remove plastic lids and rinse out leftover food. 

Mixed Paper 

All paper can be put in the mixed paper recycling bins. Remove tape or any plastic. Glossy paper like magazines can be recycled, but a large volume at once is challenging 


Remove plastics or leftover food. Put compostable food containers in teh cardboard recycling (they cannot be composted in Jasper). Please flatten boxes. No waved cardboard, it cannot be recycled. 

Grass clippings and Yard Waste

Yard waste can brought to either recycling depot. It will be introduced to our compost once collected.


We accept all hard plastics. Please empty containers and remove plastic film, metals (like a handle on a pail) or styrofoam.

Drinking Containers

Anything you drink out of can be returned to the bottle depot for a refund. You can also leave drinking containers at the recycling bins by the Activity Centre.

Small batteries can also be recycled at the recycling depots.

Bicycle tires can be recycled at the Stan Wright Industrial Park.
