Time to Order Your BigYellowBag.

The Society has a new Give and Grow code for 2024. When you order your bag online or by phone include the code CHS24. Code users will save $5.00 on their purchase and Eagle Lake will donate $10 to the Society. Last year the Give and Grow code raised $760.

Don’t wait. Order your BigYellowBag today! Remember use CHS24 to support the Society.

Note: The BigYellowBag collection depot opened Earth Day, April 22, 2024. Do you think we can collect 800 empty bags this year? So far this year, Eagle Lake has collected 172 bags from out BYB depot. Thanks!


Why do we host a BigYellowBag®depot?

Did you know that BigYellowBags® are not recyclable in The City of Calgary blue bin? Don’t send this bulky bag to the landfill, return it to Eagle Lake Profession Landscape Supply (Eagle Lake), the local licensee. The bags can be returned to their location 285177 Frontier Road, Rocky View County or, better, the bag depot at the Calgary Horticultural Society office located at 2725 33 Avenue SW, Calgary.

When open, the bag drop-off depot is located on the east side of the Society building, just across the road from the Currie Reservoir Disc Golf course entrance. You won’t miss it as it’s a BigYellowBag® on a signed holder, next to one of the Society’s raised beds. Please ensure your bags are empty and fold them up before placing them in the collection bag.

In 2022, we collected over 150 bags. By returning your BigYellowBag®, like our partner on this initiative, Eagle Lake, you are supporting the Society’s value of “Work with our environment to minimize our footprint”.
