City of Calgary Spring Yard Waste Drop Off
From April 19 – June 2, the City of Calgary will accept yard waste at landfills around the city.
You can take leaves, branches, and plants to any city landfill for composting FOR FREE!
Before you leave for the landfill:
– Make sure your load only contains yard waste like leaves, branches and plants. There may be a cost if your load contains other items.
– Your yard waste should be in a paper yard waste bag or left loose. Please cover and secure loads of loose yard waste before you transport it.
– Check landfill locations and hours.
– Please note that this program is for residential customers only. Commercial loads will pay the regular yard waste rate.
