Way to go Vegreville!!
Since 2009, Vegreville residents have helped keep 10,664,000 pounds of recyclable material out of the Landfill. That’s approximately 266 tractor trailer loads of material that’s not taking up space in, and is helping extend the life of, our Landfill!
To help ensure that the amazing recycling efforts of so many residents do not go to waste (pun intended), please ensure that bin lids are closed, newsprint and white papers are bagged to protect them from getting wet, and please DO NOT place garbage in the blue bins. The employees that have to hand sort the recycling would REALLY appreciate it.
If you have questions about recycling, please visit the Town website at www.vegreville.com , call the Vegreville Materials Recovery Facility at 780-632-3197, or stop in at 5201 – 52 Avenue. We’d love to show you what happens to your recycling after you put it in the blue bin!
This is a notice of an Immediate Road closure.
50 Street from 61 Avenue North to TWP 524 will be Closed until further notice, please make arrangements to use either Sec Hwy 857 or 47 Street.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Thank you for your cooperation

Conclusion of the Potential Sale of Municipal Reserve Lands
On behalf of the Town of Vegreville, Town Council would like to thank everyone for their input regarding the potential sale of Municipal Reserve Lands. Due to the feedback received, the Town will not be following through with the sale of the lands at this time. Town Council appreciate the feedback that was provided and are pleased that we were able to reach out to the community and acquire the much needed responses from the residents.
The Planning & Development Department, along with the Land Use Committee and Town Council have been working diligently, trying to provide the best possible amenities and services for Vegreville residents. The idea to potentially sell off current Municipal Reserve Lands to produce a revenue base for a more diverse recreation plan came up initially as a request was made to purchase some of the MR Lands. And as such, the Land Use Committee was required to discuss the potential sale of these lands, which then sparked a further exploration into the prospective benefits and detriments to the Town.
Again, the Town thanks you for your interest. The feedback received helps the Town ensure that we are meeting the needs and addressing the concerns of all of our residents and assists us going forward. Should you have any questions or require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Planning & Development Department at 780-632-6479.
