Do you need to do some Spring cleanup in your home, garage, yard?  This is the perfect way to get rid of your household chemicals, electronic waste, larger garbage items, metals all in a safe and convenient way.  A Community Cleanup is a City of Calgary service that the HCA has arranged for our Hawkwood.  The City will provide disposal trucks, and the HCA has arranged for an electronic waste recycler, and a steel recycler to be on site with us as well.

There will be a BBQ and an HCA membership sign-up table.  Come with your garbage, stay for a snack, leave with a membership!

Thanks to our sponsors, to the Hawkwood School for loaning us their parking lot for the day, and to our Director at Large Bruce for organizing this event.

Volunteers are needed for this event.  Please contact VP@hawkwoodca.com for details
