Many Calgarians are thrilled that Spring has appeared to have come early this year. As you are doing your spring cleaning, make sure to find the right place for all your unwanted stuff. By disposing of your materials the right way, you'll keep unnecessary items out of the landfill and give a second life to materials that can be reused, recycled or composted.
Keep your spring cleaning simple with help from these City programs and services:
ELECTRONICS RECYCLING DEPOT
29 locations around the city are available to take your old electronics for recycling.
SPRING YARD WASTE LANDFILL DROP-OFF
Between April 17 and May 31, take your yard waste to any City of Calgary landfill for composting, free!
HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE DROP-OFF
Safely dispose old paints and stains, pressurized tanks, cleaning products, and more. Drop-offs are located at City of Calgary landfills and designated fire halls.
Over 100 community cleanups will be taking place May - September. Check with your community association to find out when and what items are accepted.
