greengate recycling


Recycling paper and cardboard is not enough.




Some of our past recycling initiatives were challenging, but with the help of REAP, (Respect for the Earth and All People), we can continue to recycle more difficult items. In the past, we did our best to keep plastics out of landfills, but this was a difficult task without a proper facility in Calgary. Now we are able to send plastic directly to the Metro Waste recycling facility. Look for the plastic recycling drop off container here at the store. Of course, you can also recycle your plastic pot plants at home by placing them in your blue bin.


You will be able to purchase, at cost, reusable shopping bags or you may feel better about using plastic, since our plastic bags and trunk liners are now bio-degradable. greengate's cardboard plant trays are also made of 100% post consumer recycled content as well as many of our day to day paper needs.


Recycling paper and cardboard is not enough, so we have done our best to find uses for other shipping materials. Wooden pallets that have outgrown their usefulness are recycled into wood chips. Purchase Recycled Red Mulch right here at our store.


We continue to look for new ways of doing business greener. It's what we do. By supporting greengate, you are supporting all kinds of positive green initiatives.
