Community Cleanups Schedule
All Scheduled Community Cleanups Have Been Cancelled for 2020
For information on how to best manage your waste, visit Waste and Recycling Residential Services.
To reduce the spread of COVID-19, the provincial government has restrictions on mass gathering events. Due to the changing situation and uncertainty surrounding the length of time that the mass gathering restrictions will be in effect, the difficult decision has been made to cancel all Community Cleanup events scheduled for 2020.
Each year we team up with local community associations to help residents get rid of unwanted household items and property waste. More about the Community Cleanups.
When events have been scheduled for the 2021 season, the dates will be listed on the calendar below.
In previous years, Community Cleanup event dates have been assigned on a first come, first served basis. Once all applications are in, every attempt will be made to give communities their first choice of date. However, some communities may be assigned their second or third choice based on proximity to open landfill.
We moved to this new system to:
- Ensure equity in coverage across the city; and
- Ensure community event dates line up with the dates the landfill sites are open. This is because it can waste valuable time and is less environmentally friendly when a truck must travel to a landfill that is not in closer proximity to the community location.
Community Cleanups only occur during the spring and fall.
Citizen inquiries should be directed to their community association.
