New Doggie Poop Bag Dispensers

In the past, doggie doo has been a major issue around Crestmont. Your friendly neighbourhood Crestmont Community Association has come up with and idea that we hope will help to address the issue.

We have designed, built, and installed EIGHT custom doggie poop bag dispensers throughout Crestmont. The doggie bags inside have been generously donated by Scott Brayshaw – RE/MAX Real Estate (Central) so please thank him when you see him. Here are the install locations…

Doggie Poop Bag Dispenser Locations throughout Crestmont

Every one of the eight dispensers is installed just below the blue “RUFF, RUFF, RUFF!” signs that Qualico has installed at appropriate places in the community.

We need your help! Please pick up after your pet. Now, if you happen to have left your house and forgot your doggie poop bags, we got your back. Feel free to pull a couple bags from the dispenser and do your doggie parent’s duty.

Also, each of the eight dispensers has a black number on the side of it. If you notice that one is running low on bags, or there is something wrong with it, please let us know by emailing support@crestmontcommunity.org and note the dispenser number on the side. We will do our best to address the issue promptly.

If you find that the dispenser is at the end of a roll, and you can’t seem to get a new bag free, the lid opens and the plexiglass slides up to give you more room to navigate the rolls inside. Just be careful all the rolls don’t come tumbling out when you lift the plexiglass up.

If everyone does their part, we can keep Crestmont free of doggie doo, and ensure that our community is clean and a pleasure to walk around and enjoy.

Thank You!

Annual Crestmont Cleanup June 26

Hard working familyIt is that time of year again on June 26th, 2016 (9am – 1:30pm) when all of Crestmont gets out to clean up their yards, garages, and basements and gathers up the debris and garbage to bring down to the Crestmont Hall where the City of Calgary has packer trucks waiting.  GEEP will also have bins for electronics and the Crestmont Community Association will have food, coffee and snacks.

Make it a fun day for your family!  We will have pick-up sticks, vests, gloves and garbage bags at the hall so you can take your family out into the neighbourhood green spaces to pick up garbage and debris that blow in from the wind.

This is a FREE event for everyone, although we encourage you to get or renew your Crestmont Community Association Membership if you have not already done so.

Items accepted include:

  • furniture decor items
  • yard waste & grass clippings
  • materials from minor repair work
  • general garbage
  • mattresses (although we STRONGLY encourage you to recycle your used mattress instead!)
  • household electronics
  • metal
  • tires
  • barbecues

Items NOT accepted:

  • chemical products or containers
  • paint
  • antifreeze
  • oil or oil filters
  • car batteries
  • propane tanks

Recycle IconWe will also set up a free table for items that are still in good condition that you no longer wish to keep. Someone else in the community may be able to use it. It’s all about recycling items in a safe manner.

This is a family friendly event and a good way to teach our children the value of keeping all our spaces clean and to feel like they can contribute in a positive way by giving back to their community.

Please check back here for any updates / changes prior to June 26th.
