Curbside Cart Exchange

All single family homes in Airdrie are currently assigned one blue and one green 240-litre cart. The City of Airdrie is offering residents the opportunity to exchange the larger 240-litre cart for a smaller 80-litre cart; this will allow residents to choose a cart size that best fits their needs.

Visit the Curbside Cart Exchange page for more information.


Use of recycling facilities

City of Airdrie recycling facilities including the Airdrie Transfer Site are subsidized* through an environmental fee paid by Airdrie and Rocky View County residents (additional fees apply at the Transfer Site.)

*Business use of our facilities is not permitted as businesses do not contribute to this funding.
