Community Compost Depots 

Bring your leaves, grass, and other garden clippings to Steinbach’s Community Compost Depots, open every Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., from May 7 (Revised, now May 14) until October 15, 2022. Compost can also be dropped off at the Steinbach Landfill, year-round. Learn more about the landfill.

The depots are located at:

  • Woodlawn School (411 Henry St.)
  • ​Stonybrook Middle School (77 Lumber Ave.)

What can I compost?

The City composts all the material collected at depots and at the landfill and uses the rich compost in the city’s parks and gardens. When ready, compost is also available for the public to pick-up at no charge!
