  • Glass (e.g. window panes, glass table tops)
  • ​Household appliances with Freon (e.g. refrigerators, freezers)
  • Liquids (e.g. cooking oils)
  • Rail way ties
  • Sod or dirt
  • Household hazardous waste including:
    • Propane tanks

    • Automobile, cleaning, healthcare, and gardening chemicals

The City of Calgary website has information on how to properly dispose of household hazardous waste materials

Hard working family

In addition we will have plenty of food and drinks as well as a scavenger hunt for the kids.

In addition to your own property, please grab your family and come down to help clean up the community.  We will have gloves, pick-up sticks and garbage bags for you to walk through the community and pick up any debris that may have blown in from outside the neighbourhood.  There are plenty of green spaces in Crestmont that we need to visit and tidy up.

Spring Yard Waste Drop-off At City Landfills

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.
