Green Cart Collection Moving to Weekly Schedule

  • Starting the week of April 24, 2022, green cart collection will return to its weekly pickup schedule. Green carts are picked up weekly from April to October.
  • This seasonal adjustment ensures efficient collection of food and yard waste during the warmer months, when we see an increase in volume of yard waste.
  • There’s no need to worry about changes to pick up days, or to the blue or black cart frequencies.
  • Residents can visit or download the Calgary Garbage Day app to check their schedule and sign up for free reminders.
