FIRST ANNUAL COMMUNITY CLEANUP!

Please see the PDF Brochure here!

Open map of location and traffic flow

Each year, the City of Calgary Waste Recycling Services and Community Standards partner with community associations such as ours to help residents rid themselves of unwanted household items and property waste. This saves a trip to the landfill for items that don’t fit waste and recycling carts or for residents who don’t have cart service. UHCA has teamed up with the city to provide three packer trucks with crews (two for waste, one for organic materials). This is a free service for all Calgarians.

Recyclable material such as glass, propane tanks or microwaves MAY NOT be brought to the cleanup site. Please use the city’s recycling depots for these items. We will also offer organics recycling during this new community partnership event!

* Please note that provincial regulations due to Covid-19 are in effect at this Community Cleanup. This means we expect participants to adhere to the two metres apart rule. Anyone who has to step out of their vehicle is required to wear a mask and practice good hygiene.

Subsequently, City planners prepared a Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA), a Draft ARP and then a Proposed ARP for SSC redevelopment. With minor changes, the Proposed ARP was approved by the Calgary Planning Commission (CPC) on June 6, 2013.
