Green Waste Recycling

This year we are upgrading our green waste recycling capacity to increase  production of compost and soil amendments. At our site on 68 Ave we accept compostable materials, diverting them from landfills and processing them to produce a quality finished compost.

For a Healthier Landscape….

Add compost to your soil. Our typical Grande Prairie soils range from loamy clay to loamy sand; adding compost increases organic matter, improves soil structure, buffers PH and increases the population of micro-organisms that are essential for soil and plant health.

Our Garden Blend (1/3 compost, 1/3 peat, 1/3 topsoil) has been a favorite of Grande Prairie gardeners for years. This blend is excellent for gardens, shrub and flower beds, raised beds, planters and also topdressing lawns. You will really see a difference in all of your plant material just by adding compost to your soil.

WE will accept compostable materials as listed below; as long as they are not mixed with any non-compostable material. Our compost is used in gardens so we have to keep out any contamination.
