Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Closed Saturday & Sunday
Tree branch and shrub disposal is available after hours in the drop off area on the south side of the Town Yard.
What you pour down your sink can "drain" your bank account. Fats, oils, and grease can cause sewer backups by blocking the main sewer lines as well as those on private property, causing expensive property damage. Like the City of Edmonton, The Town of Devon is asking our residents to "store it, don't pour it!".
Please store fats and grease in disposable containers with lids. The containers can then be placed in the garbage. Used cooking oil should be cooled and put into a covered plastic bottle, labeled and also put out for garbage collection. Residents who are disposing of more than one litre of used cooking oil must take it to the Devon Recycling Depot. If you are disposing of less than a litre of cooking oil, it can be disposed of in your organics cart.

Did you know that the improper disposal of used oil, fuel or other hazardous fluids can cause major issues when they enter our drains?
Oil doesn’t wear out, it just gets dirty and when motor oil isn’t properly disposed of, these pollutants can reach our lakes, rivers, or groundwater and end up causing damage to the process and equipment at our Wastewater Treatment Plant and result in Provincial and Federal Environmental Violations.
If you are caught illegally disposing of hazardous waste, you can be fined under the Environmental Protection & Enhancement Act as well as be on the hook for the costs to repair any damages caused to the Town’s infrastructure.
Our Devon Recycling Depot is equipped to properly deal with used oil and other hazardous waste. If you have a larger disposal beyond the scope of our Recycling Depot, please reach out to Devon’s Public Works Department at 780-987-3342 to see how we can help properly dispose of the waste.
If you see someone suspiciously dumping fluids down a storm drain, please help us protect our river and the Town’s wastewater system by reporting it to the Devon RCMP at 780-987-3413 as well as Devon’s Public Works at 780-987-3342.
