2023 Community Cleanup

Updated: May 6, 2023

Hey Ramsay! Each year the City of Calgary Waste and Recycling Services and Community Strategies 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 three packer trucks with crews (for regular waste only). This service is free to all Calgarians.


Join us on June 18

It’s time for the annual cleaning! On Sunday, June 18th we will have three City of Calgary garbage trucks available (for regular waste) to be filled while we clean up the community. There will be no trucks for organics. There will be a BBQ lunch and refreshments available for volunteers.

The trucks will arrive at 9:00 am and will leave at 2:00 pm sharp. Our agreement with the city obliges us to turn people away at 2:00 pm. So, make sure to come early.
