Calgarians have taken our invitation to Pick Up, Pitch In and Pull Together to heart. They’re cleaning up their own yards and helping their neighbours.
So far, our three landfill sites have received close to two million kilograms from more than four thousand truck loads. That doesn’t include all of the debris at our 33 drop-off locations - A big thank you to citizens who are assisting with the clean up efforts!
Currently, The City’s priority remains dealing with hazards that have an immediate public safety concern.
Crews are focusing simultaneously on two areas:
- Tree hazard mitigation
- Tree debris collection and disposal
As always, safety is a primary consideration for both crews and citizens. We urge you as you clean up your debris and that of your neighbour’s to stay safe. Ensure you wear personal protective equipment, manage what you can safely, and leave the rest for trained professionals.
Also, please allow our crews space to do their work safely. If you see crews and equipment working in your area, please consider parking off the street to allow them access to tree trimming piles and damaged public trees, and please always slow down when passing crews.
We’re making great progress together but we have a lot of work ahead.
Thank you Calgarians for your great cooperation, efforts and patience as we get the clean-up done.
