Once the application has been approved, a pick up will need to be scheduled. Organizations are responsible for arranging a transport vehicle to pick up the compost from one of the following locations:

  • East Calgary Waste Management Facility at 3030 68 Street SE
  • Spyhill Waste Management Facility at 11808 69 Street NW

Please note:

  • Compost is loose, no bags or totes will be provided.
  • Limited quantities of compost are available.
  • Pickup location will be assigned by a City representative.

Loading Requirements:

  • Organizations picking up small volumes of compost in personal cars, trucks, or trailers will need to bring their own shovels, containers, and tarps for loading purposes. Loads must be covered.
  • Organizations picking up large volumes of compost can contract a tandem truck and request that The City of Calgary staff use a Wheeled-Loader or Skid Steer to load the compost.
