Many local charities accept donations of useable skates, cleats, balls, hockey sticks, golf clubs, baseball gloves, kiddie pools and inflatable pools and other sports and fitness equipment at various drop-off locations or offer a free pick-up service. Refer to the Alberta Recycling Hotline
You may also be able to sell your athletic equipment to second hand sports stores.
Throw it out
If you have residential quantities of unusable sports equipment, throw them out in your black cart
