Community Clean-up May 21, 2022

Updated: Mar 27

Each year the City of Calgary Waste and Recycling Services partner up with community associations to help residents get rid of unwanted household items and property waste. The event saves residents a trip to the landfill for items that do not fit in their waste and recycling carts and for residents that do not have cart service by providing packer trucks with crews. This service is free to all Calgarians.

On Saturday, May 21st we will have three City of Calgary garbage trucks available (3 trucks for regular waste) to be filled while we clean up the community. There will be no truck for organics this year.

Other services provided:

  • electronics and metal recycling

  • car battery disposal (no single use batteries accepted)

  • free/swap table

  • charitable donations to the WINS (Women in Need Society)

  • pick-up service–see Organizer contact info below.

The following items may not be brought to the cleanup site:

  • tires

  • household chemicals

  • home appliances

  • propane tanks

  • glass

  • paint

  • liquids

  • railroad ties

Details

Date: Saturday May 21, 2022; 9:00 am - 2:00 pm. Our agreement with the City obliges us to turn people away at 2:00 pm. So, make sure to come early.

Location: Calgary Bridge Centre (the old community hall site) at 1140 – 8 Street S.E.

Organizer: David Graham email: neoublee@telusplanet.net

We are looking for volunteers. Please contact David for further information. There will be a BBQ lunch by Boreal Cuisine and refreshments for volunteers.
