City offers more options to assist with clean-up efforts

City crews have made substantial progress in clearing debris related the recent snowfall. “Jumbo Teams” made up of Parks, Waste & Recycling Services and Water members will continue their efforts throughout the coming days to ensure public spaces are safe and accessible.

In addition to crews continuing their work, The City is providing the following options to assist Calgarians with their clean-up efforts:

  1. Effective immediately, all three City Landfills will accept tree debris from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Garbage and recyclables will not be accepted after 5:00 p.m. Tipping fees continue to be waived for all tree debris that is not mixed with other garbage.
  2. Beginning Saturday, September 13, citizens can access all 33 of The City’s leaf & pumpkin drop-off locations to dispose of damaged tree limbs. 
  3. Community Cleanups are also taking place in five Calgary neighbourhoods this weekend. Each event will have an organics truck, accepting yard waste and tree debris. Schedule and locations of the cleanups can be found at

Calgary’s community spirit has continued to shine through, and citizens are encouraged to be a good neighbour. Help those who are unable to clear debris from their properties.

As a reminder, debris should be cut into no more than four foot lengths and stacked as neatly as possible close to where regular cart collection would take place without blocking lanes, roads or sidewalks. Please do not put branches or tree debris into black and blue collection carts.

The City would like to thank all Calgarians for their patience as cleanup efforts continue throughout the coming days and weeks.
