Waste diversion for businesses and organizations


On Oct. 1, 2018, food and yard waste will be included on a list of materials that are subject to the disposal surcharge rate at City of Calgary landfills.

The disposal surcharge rate for 2018 and 2019 is $180 per tonne for commercial loads that include these materials. See the full list of disposal surcharge materials.
