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!!!

Crestmont Community Cleanup Sunday Sept 16

Spring Clean-upIts that time of year again where we line up the city waste services to take away all the garbage and unwanted items in our community.  Come on out Sunday September 16th from 9am – 2pm and join us for this fun event and clean up the community.

The event takes place at the Crestmont Hall and we will supply bags pick-up sticks and safety equipment and there will be a BBQ afterwards for everyone who helps out.

In addition you can empty out all the crap in your garage and basement that you have been meaning to take to the dump.  Have you had a recent renovation?  Do you have a pile of junk in your yard you need to get rid of?  How about that major pruning and yard clean-up you did or are planning to do?

Here is a link to the POSTER that shows what you can and can not bring.  Basically we CANNOT accept PAINT, CHEMICALS, FUELS or FUEL CONTAINERS, and any other DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES, but everything else from old furniture to renovation waste.  We will even have an electronics recycler on site to take away old TV sets, computers, phones, etc.
