Guidelines and rates

The City of Calgary is committed to providing a safe and respectful workplace for all employees and customers. Physical or verbal abuse will not be tolerated.
Waste loads must be tarped and secure to prevent littering. Charges apply to all loads of waste brought to the landfills.

Clean fill disposal requirements have changed (a soil analysis test may be required before disposal). Please refer to the Landfill Rates page for more information, or contact 311.

Landfill safety

City landfills are industrial worksites with large equipment, such as compactors and garbage trucks, continuously moving around.

We take our responsibility seriously to keep everyone on the landfill safe. Customers use City of Calgary landfills at their own risk. Before you head to the landfill, check our safety tips and be aware that you're entering at your own risk. For more information about The City's Landfills visit our FAQs.
