Election Sign Recycling

The Election is over! Thank you to everyone who came out to vote, it seemed like a good turnout this year…Thank you to a Canyon Meadows resident for sending the following info:

Calgary’s Waste and Recycling Services WILL recycle corrugated plastic signs and separated (metal or wood) stakes at no charge between October 15th and 29th.

DO NOT PLACE campaign signs in your blue carts.
DO NOT take signs to community recycling depots.

TO RECYCLE:
– Detach the signs from metal or wood stake and remove any other material such as tape or staples.
– Sort the signs and stakes into separate piles.
– Take the signs and stakes to any of the 3 city landfills.

Please note, regular landfill fees WILL apply to:
– signs that haven’t been separated from their stakes.
– signs that are made from something other than corrugated plastic.
– loads that include garbage or other non-recyclable material.
