Welcome home to Copperfield & Mahogany! Here’s what is happening in our communities!

The Copperfield & Mahogany Community Association (formerly known as the Copperfield/Mahogany Community Association) is dedicated to bringing community spirit to the SE Communities of Copperfield and Mahogany. We have recently updated our name and logo, and with this re-branding comes a new website, designed and implemented by our web master Jordan Usselman. We believe that these changes will help us better serve our communities, and help keep you informed about current events within them.

Attention: We’ve recently been having issues with our online store and with PayPal, where many orders were never actually completed. I have verified that the issue has been resolved, so the store is now functional again. If you’ve made a purchase within the last month, please check your PayPal to see if the order actually went through. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns about online purchases, please visit the community centre or call us at (403) 532-8864 during hours of operation. Thank you for your patience.

Our Summer newsletter has been published. Click here to find out more.

Clothing & Textiles Recycling Bin

The clothing & textiles recyling bin has a new home at the Copperfield Hall Community parking lot under the flagpole (6 Copperstone Way S.E.). We encourage you to divert textiles from the landfill and bring them here. Thanks to those who have already made donations to the bin!

Items please need to be clean, dry & bagged for protection, including old or stained clothes, slightly worn clothing, socks (holes or no), footwear (1 or a pair), hats, backpacks, curtains, towels, linens, pillows, comforters, and even stuffed animals! Please note, No hard plastic toys as these are not a recyclable textile!

All usable items will be donated locally first, used internationally, and any unusable items will be shredded and recycled into new products! A portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the Community Association and Copperfield School.

  • Did you know that over 10,000 tons of textiles was dumped into the City of Calgary landfill in 2014? That pile of clothes would be as tall as the Calgary Tower.
  • 2019 marks the estimated timeline to bylaw textile waste being permitted into the city landfill.
  • Who would have thought, blue jeans make far superior insulation for homes than any insulation currently being sold!
  • Textiles can take of to 1000 years to decompose and through the process release chemicals and carbon dioxide into our environment.
  • “My Grandma’s the original recycler! She thought of new uses for everyday items”
