Community Cleanup events save residents a trip to the landfill for items that do not fit in their waste and recycling carts or for residents who do not have access to cart service. This service is free of charge to all Calgarians.
The 2022 Community Cleanup Application period is now closed. All applicants will be informed of the status of their application no later than mid to late February.
