Things to do

Around the house

City landfillsIf you’re heading to the landfill, be sure to check out the updated landfill hours and locations on The Spyhill landfill is open this Saturday and the East Calgary landfill will be open Saturday, Sunday and Thanksgiving Monday.

Kitchen compostWhether you’ll be cooking dinner this holiday weekend, or helping with the cleanup, be sure to have your kitchen compost pail handy. You can help prevent fats, oils and grease from going down your drain by putting unwanted gravy, sauces, cooking oils and butter into your green cart. Scrape plates into your compost and use paper towel to wipe down cooking equipment. For more information please visit
