About the event

Mark your calendars - the annual Cliff Bungalow-Mission Community Clean Up event is happening on Saturday September 11th, 2021! 

The City of Calgary Waste & Recycling Services and Animal & Bylaw Services are generously supplying packer trucks with crews for waste and organic materials. This event saves local residents a trip to the landfill for items that do not fit in their waste and recycling carts or for those who do not have cart service, and is free of charge to all Calgarians. 

These events are a great way to get the community working together to clean-up yards, alleys and local green spaces, while removing unwanted items from your home and donating them to a local charity, or off to the dump if they are beyond repair.

*The following items cannot be accepted or disposed of at the cleanup event* 

  • tires
  • household chemicals
  • car batteries
  • metals
  • home appliances
  • paint
  • wood/lumber
  • propane tanks
  • microwaves
  • home electronics 
  • liquids
  • glass
  • railroad ties

*For a list of companies that take these banned materials/items please visit the City of Calgary “What Goes Where” guide www.calgary.ca for drop off locations.
