Winter is coming to an end and Calgary Snow Angels have been helping people get around their neighbourhood all season. Snow Angels help keep a neighbourhood safe to travel in while building community spirit. If you, or someone you know has been helped by a Snow Angel, call 311 or go on line to recognize them and nominate them for prizes. For more information visit

From April 7 to May 28, all three City landfills will waive fees for residential spring yard waste. Bring your leaves, branches, plants (no sod – it can’t be composted) and other yard waste to any City landfill for free composting. Please use paper yard waste bags, leave the material loose or bring it in plastic bags (plastic bags must be emptied onsite). This program is only for residential customers and charges will apply if your load contains other items. Free mulch is available for pick up at all City landfills for both residents and businesses. Bring your shovels as you are required to load your own vehicle.
