Get Ready Now for Our Community Clean Up Day June 8

On Saturday, June 8th, we are hosting our 5th Annual Community Clean Up Day from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the MLCA parking (3130 16 St SW)


**We are sorry to announce that we no longer have a Metal Recycler participating**


  • Can I bring old wicker patio furniture? YES – will go in packer trucks
  • What about car batteries? NO – drop off at Lincoln Park/Garrison Green Fire Station #20 (2800 Peacekeepers Way SW) 7 days a week between 8 am and 6 pm
  • What about paint? YES – We have a paint recycler participating
  • Do I need to register in advance? NO – just show up
  • Is there a cost? NO – donations appreciated

The goal is to save residents a trip to the landfill for items that do not fit in their waste and recycling carts and for those who do not have cart service. This service is free of charge to all Marda Loop Communities residents (South Calgary, Altadore, River Park and Garrison Woods)

The City of Calgary supplies three packer trucks (two for waste and one for organic materials).

There are several items that the City of Calgary’s packer trucks will not accept. So, we have arranged support from the following community-minded businesses:

* Liberty Tire Recycling will take your old TIRES

* Women In Need will take your women’s and children’s CLOTHING and HOUSEHOLD   GOODS

* Mustard Seed will take your men’s CLOTHING

* eCycle Solutions will take your HOME ELECTRONICS

($20 service fee for anything that is refrigerated or contains freon)

* The Urban Painter will take your PAINT

(best to bring paint early as they leave the event once their trailer is full!)

Yard waste

Leaves, branches, plants, grass clippings and other yard waste (excluding sod) will be accepted at Community Cleanup events for composting. Yard waste must be separate from other items. All of the organic materials collected will be taken to one of the Calgary’s composting facilities.

Free Zone

Stuff you don’t want and can’t be bothered having a garage sale?

Bring it to our Swap Centre.
