Community Cleanups

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 cart service. This service is free of charge to all Calgarians. Applications for the 2021 season are now closed.

We supply three packer trucks with crews (two for waste and one for organic materials), funds for advertising and promotion, face coverings, sanitizer, gloves, and garbage bags for the group of community volunteers.

COVID-19 precautions

Please note that provincial regulations due to COVID-19 are in effect at all Community Cleanups. Please visit for the latest COVID-19 provincial regulations.
