It’s the 2019 Community Clean up and since it falls on the same day as Neighbour’s Day, we decided to throw a free BBQ as well! This is a great opportunity to clean out that garage a bit and join us for some fun.

As always, please be reasonable and remember that this is for RESIDENTIAL disposal. Contractors and those with commercial waste needs will still need to use the city landfills

 

Neighbour’s Day Celebration 1pm – 4pm

  • Free BBQ (including Halal & vegetarian options)
  • Door prizes
  • Kids activities

We Need Volunteers!

As you can see, we’ve got our hands full on Saturday and could use some help. If you’re free and willing to help out, we’d love to have you (and feed you as well)! Please consider helping out, the WCA is entirely volunteer-run and we can always use a helping hand. 

We need another 4 volunteers for the BBQ to help out with games, food, etc. and we need at least 6 to 8 more people to help with the community clean up (9am to 2pm).

You can sign up here below, please specify where you are willing to help (BBQ, Clean Up, or either). Give us a call at 403-280-2880 if you have any questions.
