Community Clean-Up

Signal Hill Community Association Community Clean-Up 2019

The Signal Hill Community Clean-Up is taking place on Sunday, September 8th from 9am-1pm!

The event will be held at the parking lot beside the SHCA Skating Rink (489 Sienna Park Drive SW). This event provides you with the opportunity to dispose of items that are building up in your basement, garage or yard at no cost (except for Car Seats, please see below). This event is open to all Calgary residents. 

General Waste & Organics

The waste must be separated into:

a)      Organic material that can be composted (grass, sod, wood, branches etc.)

b)      Non-organic items (plastics, metal, shingles, furniture, etc.)

Car Seats – Kidseat Recyclers will be on site accepting car seats. SHCA membership is required for free recycling ($10, for sale at the Community Clean-Up), otherwise you will be responsible for paying the $15 recycling levy. 

Bikes, scooters, wagons and strollers – The Calgary Immigrant Support Society is looking for gently used bikes, helmets, scooters, wagons, strollers and unexpired car seats for those in need. Although our group focuses primarily helping those that have escaped war torn countries, we strive to help anyone in our city in need that messages our organization. Please note we do not have a team of mechanics to assist, so we can only accept gently used bikes that require little maintenance for this purpose. Tune ups, tube replacements etc. are gladly accepted.

Electronics – Techno Trash will collect electronics and computer related equipment (TVs, monitors, keyboards, hard drives, printers, fax machines, laptops, wires, cables, cell phones, etc.).

Metals – Recon Metals will collect metal items (bed frames, stoves, washing machines, dryers, lawn mowers, old barbecues, car batteries, lead acid batteries, electrical wire and copper plumbing).

Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta will be with us to collect donations of gently used items, such as clothing, toys and games, books, linens, recyclable beverage containers, shoes and small household items.

Please note that if you plan to bring heavier items like stoves, washing machines etc. that you are responsible to bring your own help to off-load these items.

 Community volunteers will be on hand to direct traffic. Unacceptable or inappropriate items will be turned away and no items can be left at the site.

Items that will not be accepted include:

  • Fridges, Freezers, Power tools.
  • Tires, Propane tanks, Paint, Liquids, Household chemicals, Alkaline batteries
  • Windows, Glass
  • Railway ties

The event is held with the support of the City of Calgary’s Waste & Recycling Services and Animal & Bylaw Services.
