Council direction


Council has approved a waste-diversion target of 70 percent diversion by 2025- a key step in leading Calgary toward zero waste. Our service extends the life of existing landfills, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and recognizes waste as a resource to promote a healthy environment.

We’re focused on financial sustainability through efficiency, value-for-money, continuous improvement, innovation and learning from Calgarians. Customer engagement is a priority to identify and respond to waste and recycling needs.
