The Solid Waste Utility collects, diverts and/or disposes of solid waste from City of Medicine Hat waste customers. The Utility ensures all disposal operations meet the rigid safety, environmental, monitoring, recording and reporting parameters of Federal, Provincial, solid waste industry and local standards. Waste diversion programs are also planned and executed to meet Council’s solid waste diversion goals.
Directed by Waste Bylaw #1805, both the Utility and Medicine Hat residents must adhere to the provisions set forth in the bylaw. This refers to proper waste disposal, collection and handling; set-out guidelines and instruction; utility fees and disposal rates. The Solid Waste Utility is also regulated by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP).
