Recycling at Southgate
Green is the new Black
Did you know that Southgate purchases 39% of its power needs from wind-generated electricity? An active supporter since 2004, Southgate Centre and Ivanhoe Cambridge are proud to be the leading users of green power in the North America real estate industry to reduce greenhouse emissions.
Recycling at Southgate is a process that is continually evolving as we seek better and more progressive environmental solutions to deal with the waste that we produce. Our waste diversion rate is currently approximately 64%! On October 15, 2014, we entered into a new partnership with the City of Edmonton. With this contract with the state of the art Edmonton Waste Management Centre, we expect to see our waste diversion rate grow between
3%-5% in 2016.
Think before you throw. After a meal in the food court, please check to see if there are any unused condiment packets on your tray. Unused condiment packets are donated locally....leaving behind less waste in the landfill!
Our tenants are our partners too! We have an established ‘Blue Bag’ program for all tenants. Tenants have the tools and knowledge to make recycling a part of their daily routine. This cooperation at Southgate will help us achieve our waste diversion goals.
EV Charging Stations
Southgate is pleased to be the first shopping centre in Edmonton to provide its patrons with two electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. The two charging stations are located on the second level parkade (access via south ramp).
Along with the two EV charging stations, Southgate is pleased to be the first Edmonton location for 8 Tesla Superchargers. The Tesla Superchargers are exclusive to Tesla owners and can charge your Tesla model in 20 to 30 minutes. The Superchargers are located on the second level parkade (access via south ramp).

Water Bottle Fill Stations
Leave behind the plastic! Bring your reusable mugs from home and fill them up at Southgate while you shop! We are pleased to offer 3 water bottle fill stations in the centre to re-fill your mug with fresh, cool water. Find them in the Food Court, near the south washrooms by Zara, or centrally-located between Bunches and Papyrus.
