Spring Clean-Up

UPDATE: Spring Clean Up will take place June 8th – 11th with a few changes. Please visit https://altona.ca/residents/community-and-social-services/spring-clean-up/

In the past, Spring Clean-Up has been held in May, and was an opportunity for Altona residents to clean out some household items and tidy up their yards without having to take a trip to the landfill. This year, instead of holding Spring Clean-Up in May, it has been scheduled in June. This decision was made last year, to better fit with the scheduled activities of the Public Works team. In May, they will be busy with lots of other activities, such as sweeping streets and boulevards,

If you don’t want to wait to start clearing up your yard, don’t worry! Weekly compost collection is back, and your yard waste (except branches) can all be picked up by the weekly collection! Fill your compost cart, and then use paper yard bags, or a container with molded handles for the extra. Remember, you are not limited in the amount of compostable materials that you can set out.

If you don’t want to wait to clean out household items, the landfill and waste diversion loop are still open. We are not accepting cash at this time, so please be prepared with an alternate payment method.

*Please note: a final decision has not been made, and this service is subject to change in light of COVID-19.
