Greetings Ward 14!
Ward 14 Communities BBQ
Thank you to everyone who attended! It is so great to see people rallying around their community association.
Of course the sponsors deserve a huge thank you too. It could not have happened without Spolumbos, Genstar, United Communities, ATCO, Mattamy Homes, Southgate Chevrolet Buick GMC, Canyon Creek Toyota, Jack Carter Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC, Waste Connections of Canada, Pacific Developments, Southcentre Mall, Safeway, Spruce Meadows, South Trail Insurance, No Bull Bookkeeping, Westcreek Developments, and Great News Publishing. Thank you to all of them!
Green Cart, Leaf & Pumpkin Program, and Fall Yard Waste Drop-Off
As of October 2 all of Ward 14 will be receiving green cart service. This is a whole new way of doing things, and that means we should go over the details of a couple long-standing and related programs.
The Leaf & Pumpkin Composting Program is being discontinued. It had a great 20 year run and I want to thank Calgarians for supporting it, but the green bin has made it unnecessary. Please remember not to bring your yard waste to a former community depot site this year!
If you don’t want to wait for the City to pick up your green cart there will be a Fall Yard Waste program from September 29 to October 29. You will be able to take your yard waste - not food waste or sod - to any City landfill, free of charge, during that time. Landfill hours and locations can be found at calgary.ca/yardwaste.
Thanks for reading!
