Compost Giveaway

Fall Compost is now available for residents at the Mike Mitchell Recycling Depot.

Due to COVID-19, staff are not able to help residents load materials. Please maintain a physical distance of 2 m (6ft) from others. Please bring your own shovel and container, as these materials will not be available on site.

You’re using the Green Organics Cart, why not use some of the end results?

Each year the City of St. Albert collects about 9,000 tonnes of compostable material from Green Organics Cart and our Compost Depot. The City is pleased to offer residents the finished compost material for free. 


The Mike Mitchell Recycling Depot is located beside the Public Works building at:

7 Chevigny Street, St. Albert
