How to compost sod and loam

​Put residential quantities of sod in your green cart for composting.

Weight restrictions

  • Carts have a 60 kg weight limit. If you can easily roll the cart, it should be ok.
  • Paper yard waste bags have a 20 kg weight limit. Make sure bags are rolled up and can be easily lifted.

Special instructions

  • Fill your green cart first. If your green cart is full, use paper yard waste bags.
  • To reduce weight, try to remove excess dirt from the back of the sod.

Composting for sod is not available at City landfills. If you take sod to the landfill, you will be charged the basic sanitary rate​.
