Ever wonder what happens to all the leaf and yard waste the city collects curbside? They’re turned into compost!

From May 10 – 12, 2024, 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:

  • 1901 Brady Road (next to Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot)
  • Kilcona Dog Park (west parking lot off McIvor Avenue)
  • Summit Road closed landfill site (Summit Road north of Optimist Park)

The event is for Winnipeg residents only. Winnipeg residents can take home up to 100 litres of compost per vehicle that they can use for their lawns, gardens, and plants.

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.
