 Items made out of wool


Take items made out of wool to any City landfill for free textile recycling.

Special instructions

  • Our Throw 'N' Go bins accept wool clothing, wool dryer balls and other wool accessories.
  • Place items inside a bag before dropping off at the landfill.
  • This helps keeps the clothing dry and makes it easier to collect.
  • If you bring other garbage in your load, landfill charges will apply.

Learn more about The City of Calgary's textile recycling program.

Why can't wool items be composted?

  • Many textiles are made of a mix of organic and synthetic fibres that will contaminate the finished compost
  • These manufactured products will not break down properly during the composting process.
