It 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.
We 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.
On June 14 2015 we are having our community yearly clean up.
We will be having two city garbage trucks and one organic truck along with metal and clothing recycling. The trucks will be in our parking lot at 12400 Crestmont Boulevard SW, Calgary, AB T3B 5W5 from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
We will also have hot dogs, Spolumbos, pop and coffee for all who help out cleaning up Crestmont. A very cool prize for the most garbage collected and a prize for the strangest item brought in will be awarded.
Between April 19th and June 2nd, residents can take yard waste like leaves, branches or plants to any City of Calgary landfill for composting free of charge.
The yard waste should be loose or in paper yard waste bags. If your load contains items other than yard waste, you may be charged a fee. Consider holding non-yard waste for the Annual Spring Clean-up that is currently in the planning stages with your Crestmont Community Association. Watch here for more details and if you are interested in volunteering, please let us know.
Well it all came together for a successful second annual community clean-up event. Special thanks to the City of Calgary, Calgary Parks & Recreation and Techno Trash for providing their trucks, people, services and supplies. Also, thanks to the Crestmont Community Association board members for volunteering their time and resources to make this happen.
We are already planning the next event so please stay tuned to our website and be sure to sign up for our e-Newsletter so we can keep you informed.
