The City of Winnipeg is inviting residents to think sustainably this spring, by taking advantage of our annual compost giveaway, and by finding a new home for reusable, unwanted items during the Spring Giveaway Weekend.
Annual compost giveaway
The grass clippings, leaves, and twigs that residents have hauled to the curb as part of our yard waste collection have been turned into piles of compost ready for your garden and we are giving it away for free May 13 to 15 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. while quantities last at the following locations:
Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot, 1777 Brady Rd.
Kilcona Dog Park, west parking lot off McIvor Avenue (line up on Norris Road, south of McIvor Avenue)
Summit Road closed landfill site, Summit Road north of Optimist Park

This event is open to Winnipeg residents only. Residents must bring their own containers, shovels, and gloves. There is a limit of 100 litres of compost per vehicle (approximately five 19-litre/five-gallon pails) and no trailers are allowed. To promote social distancing, only one vehicle will be allowed per compost pile at a time.
