Today!! Community Clean-Up! Sept 13

September 13, 2014





Join us for our Annual Community Clean-up! Saturday, September 13th, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Winston Heights Community Center located at 520 -27th Avenue NE.

This is an amazing way to do your fall cleaning! All you have to do is come by the Community Centre between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and drop off anything that you may want to clear out of your house, office, garage, etc.

Technotrash, will be on hand to handle any electronics or appliances (no refrigerators) you may need to be rid of. Action Tyre will be on hand to take care of any old tires and car batteries you may want to part with. Goodwill will there to take anything you feel may have some life left in it and be of use to someone else (no upholstered furniture). And as always, City of Calgary crews will be there with Two Trucks for Waste and One truck for Organic Waste. That means you can bring by anything their compactor trucks can handle and from what I’ve been told, they can handle just about anything that doesn’t have too much metal in it. So that means, mattresses, book cases, couches, end tables, you name it! And the organic truck can handle exactly that, organic waste like yard waste, compost etc.

For your general information, no batteries (other than car batteries), no chemicals, no paint, no Freon-containing appliances are accepted anywhere other than the firestations.

This service is completely free to Winston Heights/Mountview Community Members, and if you don’t have a membership, don’t worry, we will have people on hand selling memberships at $10/household. So if you don’t yet have one, but would like to purchase one, you can do so at the Clean-up!
