Brentwood Community Cleanup June 22 2024

Take part in the foam recycling pilot

A six-month pilot project began on May 13 to collect foam packaging (also known as Styrofoam) for recycling at any of the three City landfills. Calgarians can bring foam packaging for recycling to the designated area at a landfill free of charge.

Calgarians can bring clean foam with no food residue, tape, glue, or labels. Examples include:

  • Shipping foam packaging (ex: foam that protects new electronics).
  • Foam egg cartons.
  • Foam meat trays with absorbent pads removed.
  • Foam take-out containers.
  • White and colored foam. No black polystyrene foam.

Can’t take foam to the landfill? Put it in the black cart as garbage. Do not put in blue cart. Foam breaks into small pieces in collection trucks causing contamination and lowering the market quality of the other recyclables.
