Community Cleanup – Saturday July 10

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

When: Saturday, July 10th, 2021 from 9 a.m.–2 p.m. (please arrive prior to 1:45 p.m.)
Where: The far west end of Discovery Ridge Boulevard
What: Please check the list below for items that will and will not be accepted on July 10th to avoid any unnecessary trips.
Important note: Please note that provincial regulations due to COVID-19 (staying 2 metres apart, wearing masks, and practicing good hygiene) are in effect for all Community Clean Ups.
