Edmonton Compost Giveaway starts May 8

“City of Edmonton Compost is graded Category A, meaning it is suitable for landscaping, gardening, tree and shrub planting and top dressing. It creates a tremendous soil conditioner that can help your gardens grow. In 2021, over 10,000 residents picked up 1,418 tonnes of compost from the Ambleside and Kennedale Eco Stations.”

The City is asking “people to bring their own shovel, pail(s) container(s) and or bag(s). The maximum amount of compost that can be collected is 100 litres (approx. 67 kg), which is equivalent to five 20 litre (five gallon) pails, two 50 litre plastic tubs, or two regular-sized garbage bags. To lift compost safely into a vehicle, it is recommended to have another person help. If using the bed of a truck, be sure to secure the material with a tarp”.

New Year Eve Fireworks Cancelled Amidst Covid 19 Concerns

The severity of the Omicron variant is not yet known, but it is clear that there is an increased risk of transmission. Out of an abundance of caution, and in an effort to protect Edmontonians from this virus, the City’s New Year’s Eve fireworks show has been cancelled.

“The City of Edmonton is ready to adapt to changing public health orders at a moment’s notice, and I send my gratitude to all Edmontonians who do the same,” said Andre Corbould, Edmonton’s city manager. “Although these measures could impact some of your choices over the holidays, I encourage everyone in Edmonton to change their plans towards the safe, outdoor alternatives available to them throughout our city.”
