Tuesday, May 21, 2019

Residents are invited to bring a pail and shovel up some free compost at the fifth annual Green Gold event set for Saturday, May 25 at the RONA parking lot (5202 Discovery Way).

City staff will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at RONA to help with the compost giveaway and to offer eco-friendly advice to keep lawns and gardens in great shape. Each household can purchase a composter and a rain barrel for a special one-day discounted price. The event will include refreshments and a random prize draw.

The city’s annual Green Gold event is made possible through support from RONA. For more information about this and other environmental initiatives, visit or contact our Eco-smart Hotline at and 780-980-7107
