Town of Canmore

We appreciate all of your efforts to divert food waste away from the landfill! We want to give the finished product - compost - back to you for gardening!

When: May 25 & 30 between 2 - 7 pm. You may sign up for either date, but not both.

Where: Canmore Recreation Centre (back parking lot) - see map below

To manage traffic during this SIY (shovel-it-yourself) event, numbers are limited, and residents must sign up for a 30-minute timeslot. We also ask that you bring your own shovel and containers and take no more than 100 L of compost.
