Ward 11 News: Green Cart Service Comes to Ward 11 June 2017

  • Share

Ward 11 official website

The Green Carts will be delivered to Southwest Calgary residents between June 5 and July 15, 2017. Weekly Green Cart collection will start on July 17, 2017.

Green carts have proven to help residents cut their garbage nearly in half in the pilot communities. On a city-wide basis, that would translate into over 85 million kilograms of food and yard waste kept out of our landfills every year.

By using your green cart, you will:
•  Create nutrient-rich compost
•  Protect our land, air and water resources
•  Keep material out of landfills to avoid future landfill costs

Watch this video for a more in-depth look at the benefits of composting versus burying food and yard waste in the landfill.​​​​​​​​​​​
