Prairie Disposal Ltd is excited about our new working partnership with the Town of Beaverlodge, as Beaverlodge is the first town in the North Peace Region to have a complete fully automated curbside collection program. We are looking forward to working with the residents of Beaverlodge, and hope to improve on all your collection needs.

Sorry about that. Please call (780) 539-5950.
Blue Container is for Mixed Paper:
Construction paper and carbon paper are not recyclable.
Green Container is for Plastic & Tin:
Only plastics with the numbers #1, #2, #4 or #5 are accepted.
Only plastic bags and containers numbered with a 1, 2, 4 or 5 can be recycled. The number can be found in a recycling triangle, often on the bottom of the container.
If the plastic item does not have a number on it or is not one of the numbers above, it goes in the garbage not the recycling.
It is very important when recycling to separate the different kinds of plastics. To ensure your items are recycled, please include accepted plastics.
Lids are often made from a different kind of plastic than the rest of the container. If a lid is not labeled with a 1, 2, 4 or 5, it is not recyclable. Any contamination (wrong type of or non-numbered plastics) can cause a whole load of plastics to be sent to the landfill instead of being recycled.
Please rinse containers and remove labels (paper labels can be recycled with office paper).
If you’re still not sure what can be recycled or should be thrown away, please contact Prairie Disposal Ltd. at (780) 539-5950.
If you have front street collection:
If your collection is in your rear lane:
Collectors would rather residents not build container enclosures. Enclosures can sometimes impede their progress. Collection on front streets, for example, where there are no enclosures, is much more efficient than it is in lanes.
