Crestmont Community Cleanup

SUNDAY September 15th 9:00am – 1:30pm

Hey Everyone, it is that time of year again where we all get together and clean up our communities. This is a great opportunity for all of us to clean up our garages and yards and also help out by cleaning up the green spaces around our communities.  We will have garbage bags, gloves and pick-up sticks available for everyone to use.  Please grab your family and come down to help out.  We live in beautiful communities and it is up to us all to keep them clean and tidy.

Just a few important details…

What we can take:

  • Typical garbage
  • Electronics
  • Yard waste
  • Clothing

What we CANNOT take:

  • Metal
  • Propane and helium tanks
  • Paint, fuels and chemicals
  • Tires
  • Anything dangerous.

If you have any paint or chemicals you can take them to participating fire stations or landfill sites.

For household items and furniture, hang on to them and email us at info@crestmontcommunity.org as we are arranging for a collection for those in need.

Please join us at the Crestmont Hall and please be careful and respectful to everyone!!!

Compost Your Real Christmas Tree

Christmas Table & Decorations from Picjumbo

Cut your tree into smaller pieces to put into your green cart. Make sure the lid can close.

If your green cart is full, tie extra branches (no more than four feet long) together with a natural fibre string or place them in paper yard waste bags. Set tied branches or yard waste bags at least one foot from the side of your green cart.

You can also bring your Christmas tree to a tree drop-off from December 26 to January 31.

How to prepare your tree

• Remove all lights, ornaments, tinsel, string and tree stands.

• Do not wrap or bag your tree.

Fun With Google Maps

Have you checked out the new feature of Google Maps?  Now you can view your world in 3D right in your web browser.

To get started go to https://maps.google.ca and zoom into an area and go to street view.  Do that by dragging and dropping the little yellow stick man in the bottom right corner of your screen onto a street.

Once you are in street view mode, you can zoom out with your mouse wheel or by clicking the “minus” button in the bottom right of the screen.

In 3D view you can hold down the CMD/CTRL key and click and drag with your mouse to spin and tilt.  If you do not hold the key down you can click and drag to scroll around and view the area.

Have fun!
