2020 Spring Clean-Up

Annual Spring Clean-Up Week:  

Expanded Residential Curbside Waste Collection

During the weeks listed below, Public Works crews will collect additional household items placed at roadside on the regular garbage collection day.  

  • Geraldton Ward - July 6-10, 2020
  • Longlac Ward - July 13-17, 2020
  • All other Wards (Nakina, Beardmore, Rural West and Rural East) July 20-24, 2020

Please note: All eligible materials shall be placed at curbside prior to 7:30 am on the regular garbage collection day. Various Public Works vehicles will be mobilized to complete the collection by road sections.  Waste should be organized neatly at curbside by material type (eg. electronics, scrap metal).  Once crews have serviced an area the collection period has ended - crews will not return to collect items placed at the curb later in the day.  

Restrictions are identified in the Spring Clean Up Program Policy, and include household hazardous waste (eg. paint and fertilizer) and demolition waste (shingles, dismantled buildings).  Refrigeration appliances must be marked with a Freon Tag available at municipal offices for a fee.  Alternate service dates are not permitted.  

Landfill tipping fees for non-commercial waste are waived for residents during this event.  

The municipal depots for Household Hazardous Waste will be open from July 4 to September 5, 2020.  Read more...
