In 2017, the City of Calgary has expanded recycling and organics waste bylaws that will affect all multi-family residences and businesses. Bylaw changes require all businesses, multi family and single family locations to divert their organic waste from landfill.  With this By Law, Calgarians are required to provide adequate storage and containers for organic waste materials. The organic waste needs to be collected and taken for composting.  Get your customized organics program today!
