Leaf and Yard Waste Depots

The City of Regina Leaf and Yard Waste Depots are in full swing again.  The City of Regina has four depots throughout the city where residents can drop off their leaf and yard waste at no charge. The leaf and yard waste is then brought to our facility to be composted.  We love this program!  It feels great knowing the waste is being diverted from the landfill and turned into nutrient rich compost.  We have a 30 acre facility just outside of Regina where we compost all the leaf and yard waste from The City of Regina depots AND we accept material throughout the year from residents and commercial haulers.  For more information on fees and hours of operation contact Karen @306-535-0501.  The following is information from The City of Regina website in regards to the leaf and yard depots.
