It’s time to clean up and green up!
ESTEVAN, SK (April 17, 2023): Beginning May 15th through May 22nd, 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!
Commercial properties will not be included in the operation, but the city supports and appreciates the efforts made by commercial properties during the week in the community that help to beautify the city streets.
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 17 and Southside of the city on May 18 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 17th for the Northside and May 18th for the Southside. Call backs will not be accepted.
To end the week-long event, the City of Estevan landfill will be holding a Free Landfill Weekend. 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. Landfill hours are Saturday, 9 am – 6 pm; Sunday, 9 am – 6 pm and Monday, 8 am – 8 pm.
