Date to be determined

The City is working on a plan to resume the Spring Clean Up service safely in 2021, while adhering to Provincial Orders limiting gatherings and requiring physical distancing.

In 2019, received 630 vehicles and 70 tonnes of refuse and recyclables - a significant number of interactions that must be managed safely.

Please also consider supporting a Colwood small business if you have spring clean up items to dispose of. Check out these Colwood licensed Junk Removal Businesses.

The City of Colwood Public Works Department works hard to keep our city clean, safe and running efficiently. One important way they do this is by offering the annual Spring Clean Up program.
