Community Clean Up

Community Clean up

Community Clean up is an annual program where Town Administration collects refuse from Drumheller Valley residents that would otherwise not be collected in regular curbside removal.  Community Clean up saves residents a trip to the landfill for items that do not fit in their waste cart. This service is free of charge to all Drumheller residents. 

The Town works with the Drumheller & District Regional Landfill to implement Community Clean up on a neighbourhood-based schedule that encourages participants to place their unwanted items in advance of their scheduled Community Clean up date. Items must be sorted and placed where residents put their regular household garbage.   

  • This program does not include disposal of demolition material. Commercial/Industrial waste is not included in this program. 
  • No single site is to exceed the volume of a ½ ton truck 
  • Importing waste from outside of Drumheller Corporate limits is strictly prohibited

Kick it to the Curb

Residents of Drumheller can reduce, reuse and recycle belongings by placing them on their front boulevard or curb the weekend before Community Clean-up begins. Kick it to the Curb is a community-wide opportunity for residents to say good-bye to unwanted, gently used household items such as kitchenware, sporting equipment, unwanted gifts, electronics and furniture.

WHEN: Friday, September 10th, Saturday, September 11th, and Sunday, September 12th 8:00am – 8:00pm each day.

HOW: Participants bring their unwanted belongings to the boulevard or curb in front of their home, with a "FREE" label on it. This could be masking tape, stickers or download our "FREE" tags to print at home.

  • Participants should only take items labelled as "FREE"
  • Respect others' property
  • Discarding other items on another person's property is prohibited
  • Curbside items must be removed at the end of the program to avoid fines

Remaining items left over from this program must be removed from the curbside or boulevard no later than Sunday, September 12th 11:59PM. Residents are encouraged to donate any leftover items that are in good condition to our local donation services. Additionally, remaining items can be disposed of in the Community Cleanup program, scheduled for September 13th – 24th
