Colwood Clean Up deferred to 2022
We encourage you to call the licensed junk removal businesses in Colwood if you have items to dispose of. It's a great way to support neighbours who are small local business owners.
Why no Clean Up in 2021?
After being delayed in the spring to protect public health during the pandemic, it was up for discussion during Council budget deliberations, where it was deferred until 2022 as one way to offset tax increases.
Background about the Colwood Clean Up
In 2019, the City welcomed 630 vehicles and received 70 tonnes of refuse and recyclables. Residents pay a fee for drop off, but fees do not cover the full cost of staffing and removal of all the materials that must be processed and hauled away for safe disposal and recycling.
The City of Colwood Public Works Department works hard to keep our city clean, safe and running efficiently. One important way they have done this in past years is by offering a Clean Up program at City Hall.
For a small fee, residents have brought 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.
