City of Calgary commercial recycling services
The City of Calgary offers commercial garbage, recycling and food and yard waste collection services for businesses and organizations.
If you already have City of Calgary service or are interested in our services, see City of Calgary Commercial Waste Collection Services.
Below, you will find more information about what recyclables are accepted with our services as well as other recycling services we offer such as scrap metal, wood and plastic film recycling.
Mixed recycling services
Our mixed recycling (no sorting required) service accepts the same materials as the Blue Cart program and meets the requirements of the commercial recycling bylaw.
Put recyclables loose in your recycling bin. Do not use garbage or blue recycling bags. If you use bags to hold your recyclables, empty all the materials into your bin loose and reuse/recycle your plastic bags.
Other recycling services
Waste & Recycling Services also offers additional recycling options for large commercial quantities of other recyclable materials.
These materials must be set up as a separate recycling service from the mixed recycling items above to ensure proper collection and recycling of materials.
NOTE: To encourage recycling, commercial loads of garbage that contain designated materials such as paper and cardboard, scrap metal and recyclable wood will be subject to a higher rate at City landfills. To avoid higher rates please ensure these materials are separated and recycled.
