Apply for the City’s Compost Rebate Program

Composting is a great, green way to recycle items such as fruit or vegetable scraps and yard trimmings, providing important nutrients for garden soil. It also helps retain moisture, which can save water, help prevent erosion, and loosen compacted soil, resulting in better drainage.

If you’re a Tamarac resident, you may qualify for a $50 rebate through this program, whether you’re a single-family homeowner choosing an outdoor unit, or a multifamily resident purchasing a countertop unit.

  • When: The original sales receipt must be dated between March 1, 2022, and September 30, 2022.
  • More details:
    • The rebate must be submitted by a Tamarac resident who currently resides at the home, either a tenant or an owner-occupier.
    • Landlords are not eligible to claim a rebate for their rental properties.
    • The program is for residential customers only, commercial requests are not eligible.
    • Funds are limited, offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Once funds are depleted, rebates are no longer available for the fiscal year and any unfunded applications will be returned to the applicant.
