Organics Food Waste Drop Off Program

​Self-haul green organics bins are available at the Okotoks Eco Centre for residents who wish to compost their food and soiled paper waste but do not currently have curbside organics collection.

When organic waste is disposed of in a landfill it emits harmful greenhouse gases (mainly methane) as it decomposes. These greenhouse gases contribute to climate change. Additionally, organic waste is a valuable commodity, as it produces high quality compost that greatly supports plant growth. By dropping off your food waste at the Recycling Centre you are producing less garbage, reducing greenhouse gases, decreasing dependence on landfills and producing a valuable commodity.
