The Colwood Clean Up is back!
The City of Colwood Public Works Department works hard to keep our city clean, safe and running efficiently. One way they do this is by offering a Clean Up program at City Hall.
After being deferred in 2020 and 2021 to protect public health and maintain affordability during the pandemic, the Colwood Clean Up is back!
NOTE: There is no Branch Drop Off on Saturday, April 30th as we accommodate the Clean Up. Please save your yard waste for the following week.
Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30, 8:30am to 4:00pm
Background about the Colwood Clean Up
The Colwood Clean Up began as a service for Colwood residents when the only other option was a trip to Hartland Landfill. While there are a growing number of locations and companies residents can now access, this annual service makes it easy for Colwood residents to keep their homes and yards looking great.
In 2019, the City welcomed 630 vehicles and received 70 tonnes of refuse and recyclables. Residents pay a fee for drop off, but the City subsidizes a portion of the cost of staffing and removal of all the materials that must be processed and hauled away for safe disposal and recycling.
For a small fee, residents can bring everything from appliances and car parts to carpet and wood waste for recycling and disposal.
Appliances, batteries, automotive parts, barrels, bathtubs, bikes, branches with trunks no greater than 100mm (4”) in diameter, bricks, cardboard, carpet, clothing, compost, concrete blocks, electronics, fridges, freezers, furniture, glass, grass clippings, hot water tanks, lumber, rims, rocks, sinks, sports equipment, stoves, de-rimmed tires, toilets, underlay, wire cut into 1 meter lengths, wood waste.
Items Not Accepted
Household garbage, drywall, gypsum board, tree stumps, tires attached to rims, paint, oil, oil tanks, styrofoam or other toxic household hazardous wastes and propane tanks.
