Recycling and composting systems save valuable farmland

Posted on 1 June 2023 by Ryan Dahlman

Editor:

Southern Alberta has some of the most productive soil in the world.  Garbage is placed in landfills – and that land can no longer be used for agriculture.  

Having recycling and composting minimizes the size of landfills and saves farmland. 

 Another big plus?

  In Calgary, folks can pick up loads of free compost to spread on their gardens and lawns!  

No more paying $15/bag for black soil!
