Cougar Ridge Green Cart Exchange on July 12

Ward 6 official website
Cougar Ridge Green Carts

A special note for Cougar Ridge residents!

Cougar Ridge was one of the lucky communities in Calgary selected as one of 4 test communities several years ago, starting with a small 120-litre green cart as the City piloted the composting program.  Satisfaction levels for this service were 85%, and as you are likely aware, is now rolling out City-wide.

With that, Cougar Ridge houses will be getting new 240-litre carts. The larger green cart will make it easier for residents to compost more yard waste in their cart and ensures we’re delivering a consistent level of service to all customers. We ask that all Cougar Ridge residents prepare for this switch on Wednesday, July 12.

What Cougar Ridge residents need to do:

  • Please put your green cart out for collection, as usual, on Tuesday, July 11. After collection, leave your cart out overnight so that it can be exchanged the following day.
  • On Wednesday, July 12, your green cart will be picked up from your collection spot and a new green cart will be delivered to the front of your home. Please start using your new green cart right away.
  • Your collection days will also change the week of July 17. This will save money by increasing our collection efficiency with surrounding communities.

 Starting the week of July 17:

  • Green and blue carts will be picked up every week on Wednesday.
  • Black carts will be picked up once every two weeks on Tuesday.
