HLCA Spring Clean Up and Big Bin Event

By on May 3, 2018

Team Up to Clean Up!

We are having our Annual Spring Clean Up event as well as renting a Big Bin to help you with your Spring cleaning.


Date/Time: Saturday, May 12 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Location: 46 Heritage Dr. (Ecole la Mission)

Gloves, garbage bags, and area to clean will be provided.

Big bin will be located in front of the school. This is a good time to renew your membership as it is free for members. Membership fees are $20/year and helps us organize events like these and other community engagement activities. Please note that this event is on a first come first serve basis; Once the Bin is full the event will be closed. Memberships will be verified before disposal is allowed. Maximum one (1) large  item or 200lbs, but multiple bags per membership (please be courteous).

Please read the list below on items that can or cannot be disposed of:

    • You cannot throw paint, paint thinners, lacquers, or wood stains in a dumpster, with the exception of latex paints. If you have leftover latex paint that can’t be reused or recycled, allow the paint to solidify by pouring it into a box with kitty litter or shredded paper. Once it’s hard and dry, toss it in the dumpster. 
    • Because a majority of landfills in the Canada do not accept tires, you cannot put tires in a dumpster. However, there are various ways to properly dispose of scrap tires. One option involves taking old tires to your local auto parts store or tire dealership.
    • Asbestos, pesticides, motor oil and other automotive fluids, propane tanks, household cleaners, ink and resins, contaminated soil or absorbents, and medical waste should never be put in a dumpster. In most communities, there are scheduled community collection events where people can drop off their hazardous waste for proper disposal. 
    • Car batteries and dry-cell batteries cannot be put in a dumpster because they can leak chemicals that harm the environment.
