After a successful pilot project the program is now being implemented permanently. The carts will be rolled out by quadrant. Once all residents in a quadrant have their carts, then collection will begin as follows:
Southwest: Week of July 17
Northeast: Week of September 4
Northwest: Week of August 14
Southeast: Week of October 2
Along with the green carts, Calgarians will receive everything they need to get started including a kitchen pail and samples of compostable bags for collecting food scraps, samples of paper yard waste bags for extra yard waste that doesn’t fit inside the cart, an instruction guide and collection schedule.
