Weekly green cart returns end of April



Weekly green cart pickup is returning at the end of April. Visit calgary.ca/collection to check your schedule and sign up for reminders, or download the Calgary Garbage Day app.


Here are some tips for using your green cart:


  • All food scraps, food-soiled paper, pet waste and yard waste go in the green cart.
  • Use only certified compostable bags or paper yard waste bags in your green cart – no plastic bags.
  • Always fill your green cart first, then fill paper yard waste bags. Roll tops of bags closed and set at least two feet to the side of your green cart.
  • No plastic plant pots or bedding trays in the green cart. Rinse out and recycle in your blue cart instead.


Compost giveaway: Compost will be available for pickup, by appointment only, from May 10 to June 26. For details visit http://calgary.ca/compost
