Compost Drop Off



We’ll compost it and put it to good use, while you save time, space, and money.

Eagle Lake Professional Landscape Supply provides a convenient and cost effective way to dispose of your compostable waste at our store at 285177 Frontier Rd. SE. Instead of lining up at the nearby Calgary City Dump, you will now be able to “drop and shop” at our convenient southeast Calgary yard.

Why Compost with Eagle Lake Professional Landscape Supply?

Eagle Lake Professional Landscape Supply saves you time and money in composting. Here’s why you should bring your yard waste to Eagle Lake Professional Landscape Supply:

  • Lower Prices: Our drop prices are lower than the City of Calgary’s drop prices.
  • Safe, Easy Access: Our Frontier Rd. facility is an easy drive, for your safety and the safety of your truck or trailer.
  • Convenient Hours: We offer longer hours and shorter lines and wait times.


What We Compost?

We accept yard waste including grass clippings, leaves and branches and sod and soil, which we compost and use in our own soil blends. We charge by the cubic yard, with a minimum drop charge of $7.50 for lightweight organic dropoff. Our experienced staff simply judge the amount being dropped off and the charges are as follows –

  • $15 per cubic yard for Lightweight compost (leaves, grass clippings and branches)
  • $75 per yard for Heavyweight Compost (including soil and sod scraps)
  • $45 per yard for Midweight Compost which is a combination of Light and Heavy.

Big Yellow Bag returns

Those dropping empty bags back to Eagle Lake Professional Landscape Supply’s store location are eligible for a 20% discount on anything purchased within the store, including tools, sod, stone, fertilizer, seed or any bulk products but excluding Big Yellow Bags.

There is no deposit on the bag so therefore no refund for empty bags. We do not pick-up empty bags, but if you would like to recycle the bag, either drop it off at our store location in SE Calgary at 285177 Frontier Road SE or leave the bag out to be picked up the next time we deliver a bag to you.

It starts with the soil

Home Gardening has enjoyed an unprecedented growth in recent years as we have all rediscovered the joys of growing our own food and the mindful benefits of getting away from screens and getting our hands dirty.

We’ve stockpiled our soils and mulches for the season ahead at our sod farm east of Strathmore. Our well-aged compost is now double screened and used in all our blends. This is classified as the highest quality compost by the compost council of Canada so you will get the best product available. We are 100% locally owned and operated, so by shopping here you are supporting local.

If you have any questions, give us a call. We are gardeners too and are happy to offer advice and learn more.

Big Yellow Bag gives back

Eagle Lake Professional Landscape Supply donates a portion of all bag sales from its Big Yellow Bag program each year to The Calgary Children’s Foundation each year.

As Big Yellow Bag customers, you too are making a contribution to the Calgary Children’s Foundation, with over $100,000 donate to date. Since 1992, The Calgary Children’s Foundation has raised money for small but critically important charities that help physically, mentally, financially and socially challenged children reach their full potential. Many of these charities do not have the means to fundraise for themselves or only need a small amount of money to make a big difference in a child’s life. From a pre-school that prepares neglected and abused kids for grade one to a summer camp for special needs children.

We are also proud to support the POWER (Power (Projects Organized with Energetic Retirees) Gardening group. This group of community gardeners have been growing vegetables for the Calgary Food Bank since 1999, and in 2020 harvested 23,000lbs of potatoes, beets, carrots, zucchini and squash from the Get Growing Garden at our production Farm east of Strathmore into BigYellowBags for delivery to the Calgary foodbank.

Additionally, we contribute soil and materials to community gardens, school projects and growing charities each year and will continue to do so. For further info, please contact
