I love cleaning...just kidding! However, if I had access to a garbage truck for hard to dispose materials and if it was FREE right here in my community - then it wouldn't seem so bad!
Hidden Valley Community Association (HVCA) has once again partnered with The City of Calgary to organize a community clean-up on
Saturday May 20, 2017. This one day event has been offered to many community associations in Calgary. It helps save residents a trip to the landfill for items that do not fit in their waste or recycling carts! And did I mention it's FREE?!
The City of Calgary supplies three packer trucks (two for waste and one for organic materials). A free BBQ lunch (hot dogs, chips, drink) is offered to every volunteer. Yummy!
Yard waste such as leaves, branches, plants, grass clippings and other yard waste (excluding sod) will be accepted at Community Cleanup events for composting; however, yard waste must be separate from other items. In order to help with that we will have brown paper yard waste bags
available. All of the organic materials we collect at community cleanups will be taken to one of The Citys composting facilities.
There are some Restricted Items that the City of Calgary packer trucks will not accept:
paint (can be dropped off at any fire station)
The City of Calgary encourages residents to clean their back yards and allies! Last year we had several volunteers load up their trucks and trailers and deliver vacated materials from back allies. How awesome is that...so help out your fellow neighbors'!
PLEASE keep in mind that this event is one day ONLY
Sat May 20 from 10:00-2:00. There will not be pick-up from The City of Calgary at the Hidden Hut (10504 Hidden Valley Drive) after this date. This parking lot returns to a no dumping zone so that we can keep our community and Hidden Hut area clean - Thank you!
