The City of Lacombe’s annual spring community clean up campaign will be held from May 21 to May 30.

“We are looking forward to working with residents to keep basements and garages uncluttered, and neighbourhood alleyways free of debris,” said Infrastructure Services Director Matthew Goudy.

Residents are asked to organize and separate and sort their items into piles for pick up at the front of the property by 7 a.m. on the day their area is scheduled. All items must be sorted and neatly tied or bagged. Trees, brush or limbs cannot be more than 10 ft. long or they will not be picked up. Residents are asked not to set items out before May 18.

Materials should be sorted according to type such as metal, appliances, furniture and garden waste.

Debris left in the alleys will not be picked up. Ensure that pedestrian and vehicle traffi c are not blocked. Unmanageable, unsorted piles or piles containing hazardous waste, E-waste or recyclable material will not be collected. Any items placed out after the scheduled pick-up date will remain the responsibility of the resident.
