Now accepting pet waste

Starting April 1, residents can put pet waste in their residential organics carts.

Acceptable pet waste includes pet feces, cat litter and bedding for pets such as hamsters, guinea pigs etc. Pet waste will be accepted either loose or within a certified compostable or paper bag.

Pet waste will not be accepted in organics receptacles in city parks.


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.
