The city has come up with more details on cost and roll out of the green cart for compost recycling.
At Monday’s council meeting politicians will hear the plan is to charge Calgarians $6.50 a month for the green cart.
Food and yard waste will be able to be composted and not sent to landfills. The plan is to start delivering the green carts to homes by the middle of next year.
A pilot project in several communities has shown acceptance of the composting program with the amount of garbage going in black bins dropping by 40 per cent.
Because of that the plan is to collect regular garbage every second week with the blue and green carts picked up each week.
