The City of Calgary has set up 35 locations all over the City for you to drop off your leafs for composting by the City. Pick up some Brown Paper Leaf Bags at Rona or Home Depot, rake up your leafs and drop them off at any one of these leaf drop-off locations.

 

You have until Sunday, November 6th to drop off your bagged leaves and pumpkins to a drop-off location to be composted.

Find a drop-off location near you!

By composting your leaves and pumpkins, you help:

- Decrease use of our landfills
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- Turn waste into nutrient-rich compost
- Help collection crews during peak times of the year

When yard waste is put in the landfill, it doesn't break down. Instead, it releases carbon dioxide and methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. Composting this organic material helps greatly to reduce greenhouse gases and turn it into nutrient-rich compost supporting the growth of new plants.
