If you are a gardener (or even if you are not) the city has a great deal for you. Beginning October 1 and continuing until October 3, 2021, you can pickup 100 litres of compost per vehicle while quantities last.
The city says that the compost is made up of year and yard waste that was collected curbside as well as food waste from the Residential Food Waste Collection Pilot Project.
The compost is available at the following pickup locations between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm:
- Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot, 1777 Brady Rd.
- Kilcona Dog Park, west parking lot off McIvor Avenue (line up on Norris Road, south of McIvor Avenue)
- Summit Road closed landfill site, Summit Road north of Optimist Park
The giveaway is open to Winnipeg residents only. You must bring your own containers, shovels and gloves. 100 litres is equal to about five 5-gallon pails.
