  Where:      Riverbend Community Association, 19 Rivervalley Drive S.E.

  When:       Saturday, July 27, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM



Riverbend Community Association is once again working with The City of Calgary and other partners to organize a community clean-up event !!!!!


The City of Calgary will be supplying three packer trucks (two for waste and one for organic materials).  Yard waste such as leaves, branches, plants, grass clippings and other yard waste (excluding sod) will be accepted at Community Cleanup events for composting; however, yard waste must be separate from other items.  All of the organic materials we collect at community cleanups will be taken to one of The City’s composting facilities.


While The City of Calgary packer trucks will not accept a number of items (i.e. tires, home appliances, household chemicals, propane tanks, microwaves, car batteries, home electronics, liquids, metals, glass and paint) there will be a number of recyclers on site to assist.


·         Technotrash has once again offered to provide recycling services for electronic items.


·         The Canadian Diabetes Society will also have a bin available for gently used clothing.


·         Action Tyre will be accepting TIRES, RIMS and CAR BATTERIES.


·         A drop off for METAL and APPLIANCES to be recycled will also be available.


·         If you have an old BIKE that you have been considering getting rid of, please bring it to the event as we have a recycler who will refurbish them to donate them to charity.


·         As an added bonus, The City of Calgary will be providing the Community Association with a load of mulch that you can take free of charge.  This will be available at the Clean-Up event.


When you come by, please also bring a donation for the Calgary Food Bank as we will be taking this opportunity to collect food items for this worthy cause.


Other items worth noting:


·         Our new NDP MLA Brandy Payne will be there for some of the event to say hello and to give you a chance to meet her !

·         Our Councillor for Ward 9 Gian-Carlo Carra will also be there for some of the event to say hello.


PLEASE keep in mind that the community clean up is a one day event (Saturday, June 27, 2015 from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM).


There will not be pick-up from The City of Calgary at the Riverbend Community Centre after this date. This parking lot returns to a no dumping zone so that we can keep our community and community centre area clean.


For more info or to help out (yes, we do need a few volunteers!) at this great event please
