Airdrie Goes a Little Greener in 2014 In April,2014, residents in Airdrie began recycling organic material through a curb side organics recycling program.

Airdrie is one of the first communities in Southern Alberta to implement an organics recycling program, but there are a number of communities in Northern Alberta and many, many communities across Canada that are already recycling organics.

The decision to recycle organics is a critical step in achieving Airdrie City Council’s priorities of reducing waste and being fiscally responsible. Why recycle organics? • It is better for the environment: it turns material that is currently being wasted into a new, useable and valuable product, it saves valuable landfill space, and reduces greenhouse gases organics generate in the landfill. • It makes a big impact: just over half of the average residential garbage is made up of organic material. • Disposal costs are less: disposal costs for organics are 50 per cent less than disposal costs at a landfill
