Fall Tips for Coexisting with Our Coyote Neighbours

As the leaves start to change and pumpkin spice lattes come back into season, it is easy to forget about our growing list of yard maintenance to do next spring. However, did you know that sealing up holes on your property, like under your deck, shed, and porch, can help keep coyotes from denning in your yard next season?

Coyotes can be attracted to any unsealed hole on your property that may be an attractive place to burrow in the spring to have their pups. Coyotes mate between January and March and rear pups through early summer, during which time they may be more protective and defensive. Young animals usually disperse in the fall, but they may also remain in family groups throughout the winter.

You can also help keep your coyote neighbours wild and decrease coyote conflict by:

• Never feeding a coyote.
• Clearing away bush along the edges of your yard and trimming trees.
• Keeping your property free of garbage and secure compost in containers.
• Removing fallen tree fruit, dense shrubbery and pet waste.
• Avoiding leaving small pets outside unsupervised.

To learn more about how to protect our wildlife and what to do when you see a coyote visit:


Winter/Seasonal Parking Bans

The primary benefit of a winter/seasonal parking ban is clearer roads that are easier and safer to navigate. To achieve safe travel conditions as quickly as possible, we must work together. Edmontonians play a key role in supporting City staff/contractors as they deliver high-quality service more efficiently.

The City encourages Edmontonians to sign up for email alerts or check edmonton.ca if it is snowing to confirm if a parking ban has been declared.

For additional information about the Winter/Seasonal Parking Ban Program, please visit the following link:


inter Curbside Waste Pickup 

Starting November 1, Edmonton’s Curbside Collection is moving to its winter schedule.

Food scraps carts will be collected every two weeks until early April. In the winter, set out one of your two carts each week, along with your recycling bags. Be sure to leave one metre of space around your cart and bags to allow collectors to safely pick up your waste.
