It’s time to clean up and green up!
ESTEVAN, SK (April 16, 2021): Beginning May 10 through May 16, City of Estevan residents can join in Operation Clean Sweep. It’s a great way to clean up your neighbourhood and get ready for Spring!
Norm Mack, roads and drainage manager, shares: “Residents are spending time enjoying the outdoors, and this initiative is a great way to get our community in tip-top shape for everyone to enjoy the beauty of our city.
Commercial properties will not be included in the operation, but we do encourage all properties to participate. In the past, some businesses and organizations even went out and cleaned ditches and their properties. Everyone can make a difference.”
On the first two days of the program, City of Estevan crews will be picking up trash at the city entrances and outlying areas and city-owned properties, including green spaces such as boulevards, medians, parks and natural areas.
Day three and four crews will be making their way through residential areas, Northside of the city on May 13 and southside of the city on May 14 to pick up contained organic waste material such as twigs, leaves and yard refuse placed in your front driveway.
Note – Branches must be bundled in 3ft. lengths and leaves and yard refuse must be bagged. Items must be on the driveway BEFORE 8 am on May 13, North and May 14 South. Callbacks will not be accepted.
To end the week-long event, the City of Estevan landfill will be holding a Free Landfill. The event applies to the City of Estevan residents and their residential waste only. Commercial waste will still be accepted, but regular tipping fees will apply.
During the Free Landfill weekend, freon appliances are not included, and hazardous waste material is not accepted.
Landfill hours are Friday, 8 am – 8 pm; Saturday, 9 am – 6 pm and Sunday, 9 am – 6 pm.
