Curbside composting is coming to your neighbourhood, along with a mandatory fee of $6.50 per month.
City council approved the fees for the new green carts, which will be delivered to Calgary homes by the end of 2017, on Monday. The carts will include a small compost bucket that fits under a kitchen sink.
Coun. Brian Pincott is thrilled the city is finally ready to take this next step in reducing the amount of material going to its landfills after a successful pilot project.
"It's important to frame this in the context of, not a fee but in cost avoidance," he said.
