Recycle it

Starting November 1, 2016, businesses and organizations in Calgary are required to recycle their unprocessed wood as part of The City's Waste Diversion Strategy.

Throw it out

Commercial vehicle loads of garbage containing any untreated wood will be subject to the Designated Materials Rate at City landfills to encourage recycling instead.
