Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Update

The Varsity Multi Service Redevelopment project will affect access to the household hazardous waste drop-off at Varsity Fire Station #17.

Effective April 13, 2022, the household hazardous waste drop-off at Varsity Fire Station will temporarily move to Bowness Fire Station #15, located at 6328 35 Avenue NW. Please take your household hazardous waste to this location instead.

The drop-off shed is open from 8 am to 6 pm seven days a week and is serviced daily to keep waste levels to a minimum. Outside of operating hours, the shed is locked.

Why was Bowness Fire Station chosen?

Bowness Fire Station was chosen because of the space available at the site for a household hazardous waste shed and is located close enough to Varsity that it is still convenient for residents in surrounding communities to access the drop-off.

An alternative household hazardous waste drop-off in the northwest is Spyhill Landfill at 11808 69 Street NW.

How long will the drop-off be at Bowness Fire Station?

Depending on construction timelines, the household hazardous waste drop-off will remain at Bowness Fire Station for the next two years. We will inform the community of any changes that arise.

What if there are parking/traffic concerns?

The household hazardous waste shed is used for drop-off only. Citizens should not park there for extended periods of time—only for a few minutes to drop off their household hazardous waste.

There should be a minimal increase in traffic, due to the drop-off nature of the HHW shed and customer flow is typically scattered throughout the day.

What should residents do with household hazardous waste?

Household hazardous waste such as paint, propane tanks, automotive and cleaning chemicals don’t belong in your blue, green or black carts. Take these items to household hazardous waste drop-off at City landfills or designated fire stations for safe disposal.

Make sure to properly package and label your household hazardous waste before taking to a drop-off location. This is for your safety and the safety of employees who collect and handle your leftover chemicals. It also protects against spills and prevents the mixing of chemicals.

Have your say on The City’s Snow and Ice Program

Calgary is a winter city, and with winter comes snow. The City responds to snow using our Council approved 7-day Snow Plan.

Did you know that our snow response is guided by The City’s Snow and Ice Control Policy? This Policy is used to establish priorities and set standards for the service levels of our snow response. This policy has not been updated since 2011 and we are looking for public input on how we can explore new opportunities, make improvements, and plan how we respond to snow events in the future.

Starting today The City of Calgary will be accepting public submissions to our Snow and Ice Policy review engagement. Citizens can go to engage.calgary.ca/snow where they can provide input through a short nine-question survey that should take between five and seven minutes to complete. We are looking for multiple perspectives and to know about individual experiences as it relates to our winter services. This engagement is open to all Calgarians who wish to participate.

“This is an important first step in The City’s policy review,” says Adam Pawlak, Leader of Planning and Operations of The City of Calgary’s Roads business unit. “We want to know what is important to Calgarians, and how they feel about their snow services. Our goal is to determine what citizen priorities are when it comes to winter service in this city.”

Following the policy review, The City will provide a report back to Council in 2023. The engagement portal will be open from March 1 through March 25 and can be seen at engage.calgary.ca slash snow.

Residential Water Meter Upgrades

As a continuation of our Meter Exchange Program that began in September of 2013, we have arranged for exchanges of meters in the Ward 4 area. The program ensures water meters remain reliable and enables a more efficient water meter reading service.

In the next few weeks, we will begin to contact customers in the Ward 4, communities that have water meters identified as part of our standard process as requiring replacement. The number of meters being replaced in these communities totals approximately 1150 and the communities affected are listed below.




Why is The City exchanging my meter, it seems like you just installed it?
As part of a life cycle replacement program, The City continues to update our older meters that
have reached the end of their life cycle with newer and more efficient meters that are equipped
with Encoded Receiver Transmitter (ERT) technology. This technology allows meters to be read
by a portable device at a distance, which no longer requires monthly access to properties in
order to read their water meters.


What do I have to do as a customer?
As a customer you will need to book an appointment with our contractor, Metercor, when they
contact you. If there is anything blocking access to the meter we ask if you can clear the space
to allow us to work. The exchange of the meter is a simple process and will take less than an
hour of your time.



Who installs the meters?
Metercor is the only City-approved contractor who will be completing the meter exchanges.


What appointment and scheduling options are available for customers?
Flexible Meter Exchange appointment times are available including evenings and weekends. Appointments can easily be booked over the phone or online.

• Phone: 403.280.3070 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday

• Online: www.metercor.com/book-an-installation
