About Community Cleanups
The organized Community Cleanup events save residents a trip to the landfill for items that do not fit in their waste and recycling carts or do not have cart service. This service is free of charge to all Calgarians.
The City of Calgary supplies three packer trucks with crews (two for waste and one for organic materials) and funds for advertising and promotion, gloves, garbage bags, food and refreshments for the group of community volunteers.
Sleep Country has donated mattress bags for removal of mattresses with protection from harm like bed bugs. The mattress bags will be available at the community centre on the day of your Community Cleanup.
There are some items that the City of Calgary’s packer trucks will not accept:
- home appliances
- household chemicals
- propane tanks
- car batteries
- home electronics
- paint (can be dropped off at household hazardous waste drop-off locations)
- railway ties
Leaves, branches, plants, grass clippings and other yard waste (excluding sod) will be accepted at Community Cleanup events for composting. Yard waste must be separate from other items.
All of the organic materials we collect at community cleanups will be taken to one of The City’s composting facilities.
In addition to what is provided by the City of Calgary, PBP Community Centre will also provide (with community membership), access to:
- electronic recycling
- paint drop-off
- Canadian Diabetes Association for household goods and clothing
- Free store table!
We will also have an art sale in our main hall along with some of our community partnership groups.
We hope to see you there!
