Multi-family food and yard waste in Calgary


As of Nov. 1, 2017, multi-family complexes like apartments and condos are required to separate food and yard waste from the garbage for composting or diversion.

Similar to our multi-family recycling requirements, building owners and managers have the choice to seek out a food and yard waste service provider, and decide the best way to offer and manage the service.

If your building does not have a food and yard waste program after Nov. 1, 2017, please ask your building owner or manager if they are setting up a program. If a program is not provided, please contact us by filling out the online request below:
