Spring Community Cleanup 2014

WheelbarrowDo you have old tires, e-waste, metal, or oversized junk that you’ve been meaning to dispose of?  On Saturday, May 17th, we invite you to join the rest of the community in a spring cleanup! Starting at 9am and going until 2pm in the Hawkwood Elementary School parking lot, households will be able to drop off the following types of trash and recycling: old car and bike tires, scrap metal including appliances, old electronics including computers, printers, etc., and any household “black bin” garbage and organic waste.

Take a look around your yard and the areas surrounding your house and help in making Hawkwood and cleaner and greener place to live!


Thanks! to our Sponsors:

Action Tyre Ltd., Junk Doctorrr, ERA (Electronic Recycling Association), and The City of Calgary Waste and Recycling.

Valuable Community Service!

Disposing of your junk is FREE, though we ask that you have a HCA Membership.  The HCA will have a memberships booth set-up that you can use to check your membership status if you are unsure and/or buy one on-site.  Did you know that a yearly membership is $30 and the minimum charge at  City of Calgary landfill is $15?  That’s already half of a yearly membership, plus you don’t need to haul the junk and you can enjoy refreshments with your neighbours!
