community clean up

aPRIL 24, 2021

9AM - 2PM

Each year the City of Calgary Waste and Recycling Services and Community Standards partner with Community Associations to help residents get rid of unwanted household items and property waste. This event saves residents a trip to the landfill for items that do not fit in their waste and recycling carts.  For 2021, The City of Calgary provides 3 packer trucks for the clean (2 for regular waste and one for organic waste). This is a FREE service for all Calgarians. Paint, Chemicals, Tires, Liquids, Car Batteries, Household Appliances and Propane Tanks are NOT allowed. 

Triwood Community has booked additional vendors to help residents dispose of  and donate other unwanted items including; electronics, metal recycling, book donations, paper shredding & car seat and mattress recycling (additional cost).

Covid 19 Precautions 

We have a group of volunteers to direct your vehicle and get vehicles through the clean up as safely and quickly as possible!

 

Please be advised, with all cleanups cancelled last year, we do expect to have a higher volume this year. We ask for your patience and that your courteous to our community volunteers making this event happen. 

You will be able to drive through and drop off your garbage, organics, metals etc. The City of Calgary employees are there to operate the truck only, and not able to assist in loading the truck.

 

You will drive through and place your items in the correct bins. If you require assistance, our volunteers are there to help, but we ask that you please wear a mask when getting out of your vehicle and unloading or require help unloading. 

We're excited to be able to offer this event again this year but require your support for this to run smoothly and safely.
