Green Carts and people cleaning a yard


Weekly green cart returns end of April

Weekly green cart pickup returns the last week of April. Check your schedule at and sign up for reminders, including email, phone or download the Calgary Garbage Day app. 

While you’re preparing your yard or garden for spring, fill your green cart first, then put extra yard waste in paper yard waste bags. Roll tops of bags closed and set at least two feet to the side of your green cart for collection.

Compost giveaway
Compost will be available for pickup from April 15 to June 1, 2024, by appointment only. Planning is underway and the appointment booking tool will be available on by April 9.

Winter Cart Placement Tips

Follow these winter tips to keep your cart collection safe and on schedule:

  • Clear snow and ice to put your carts on even ground. Don’t place carts behind or on top of snowbanks.
  • Leave enough space around your carts to easily walk between and around them.
  • Store carts in a sheltered spot and move them out on collection day, so they don’t freeze to the ground. Move carts back by 7 p.m. on collection day.

Clear snow off your carts and keep lids closed. Snow in your blue cart ruins recyclables and makes them difficult to sort at the facility, meaning they can’t be turned into new products.

Prevent food and yard waste from freezing inside your green cart. Use compostable bags or place crumpled newspaper or a pizza box at the bottom of the cart.
