Residential organics collection was launched in April 2017
If you receive municipal waste collection, you also receive organics collection. Use the small kitchen bin inside the house; empty your small bin into your green cart (240L carts for single-family and duplex homes, 120L carts for townhomes)
Check the brochure for full instructions and the list of what you can can include in your organics bin.
Bi-weekly collection for fall/winter
Residential organics collection changes to bi-weekly in mid-October (collection days vary by zone). The program was designed to reduce frequency when organics volume typically goes down.
Organics are collected on the day after your waste and recycling collection day. Collection days are scheduled by zone.
Please note: We collect on ALL statutory holidays except Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
Wondering what you can include in your organics cart?
On Monday September 26, 2016, Council approved amendments to the Waste Management Bylaw required to move forward with Cochrane's organics collection program. See the presentation.
Town of Cochrane is required by the City of Calgary to implement organic collection in order to continue using City of Calgary landfills.
