Changes to the 2020 Operation Clean Sweep

The City of Estevan will be hosting an altered Operation Clean Sweep this Spring. A Free Landfill Weekend on May 15 through May 18, will be the sole opportunity for the Clean Sweep this spring because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Typically, Operation Clean Sweep is a week-long event that has City Crews and residents cleaning up and disposing of refuse. City crews clean in entrances and outlying areas of the City, pick up organic waste material from yard fronts and offer a free landfill weekend. New this year, a Househouse Hazardous Waste Drop off Day was slated – a partnership with Green for Life Environmental. All but that Free Landfill weekend will be postponed.

“Many residents are doing projects in their homes and yards, and we want to ensure that the Free Landfill Weekend can still happen, but with restrictions that are mandated by the Provincial Government at the forefront,” shared Norm Mack, Roads and Drainage Manager. “A new date will be announced when restrictions are lifted, and it is safe to hold the other opportunities.”

May 15th – 18th  –  FREE LANDFILL WEEKEND applies to the City of Estevan residents and their residential waste only.  Commercial waste will be accepted for regular tipping fees. Freon appliances are not included. No hazardous waste material will be accepted. Friday, 8am – 8pm, Saturday 9am – 6pm, Sunday 9am – 6pm, Monday 8am – 8pm.

If you would like more information or have any questions, please City Hall at 306-634-1800.
