Ever wonder what happens to all the leaf and yard waste the city collects curbside? They’re turned into compost!
From May 13 to 15, 2022, you can pick up free piles of compost that is ready for your garden. The compost will be available from 9am until 5pm, while quantities last at the following locations:
- Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot, 1777 Brady Rd.
- Kilcona Dog Park, west parking lot off McIvor Avenue (line up on Norris Road, south of McIvor Avenue)
- Summit Road closed landfill site, Summit Road north of Optimist Park
Winnipeg residents can take home up to 100 litres of compost per vehicle that they can use for their lawns, gardens, and plants.
This year’s compost is comprised of both leaf and yard waste collected curbside and food waste that was collected from residents participating in the City’s Residential Food Waste Collection Pilot Project.
Residents must bring their own containers, shovels, and gloves. 100 litres of compost equates to approximately five 19-litre/five-gallon pails. No trailers are allowed.
