Spring 2018 Community Clean Up Information

The City of Lacombe provides residents with an opportunity to dispose of household and yard refuse that one would not normally place in the regular garbage bins.  This special refuse pickup is our Community Clean Up and is held twice a year – Spring Clean Up begins the Tuesday after the May Long Weekend and Fall Clean Up begins the Tuesday after the Thanksgiving weekend in October.  Spring Clean Up begins Tuesday May 22, 2018. 

Please read below for procedures and schedule for your area:

  • Please place all items for disposal at the front your property.  Please do not place items on the sidewalk, alley or street; items must be left at the property line.  Debris left in the alleys will not be picked up.  Ensure that pedestrian and vehicle traffic are not blocked.  Do not place refuse next to or touching the bin used for normal household garbage pickup.  Please have items place out by 7:00am on the day your area is scheduled.

     

  • Any items placed out after or left on your property after the scheduled date for pick up, will remain the responsibility of the resident owner.  City crews will not return after they have completed pick up in your area.  Items can then be taken to the Prentiss Transfer Station.
  • Refuse must be organized and separated into piles for pick up.  Different trucks and equipment are designated to pick up certain items; therefore having separated piles will ease operations.  It is the responsibility of the homeowner to separate these piles, not the employees of the City of Lacombe.  All items must be sorted and neatly tied, bundled or bagged.  Trees, brush or limbs cannot be more than 10 feet long or they will not be picked up.

     

    Please separate material according to the list below for pick up:

    • Brush & Wood – treated, painted & stained wood needs to be separated into a general rubble pile
    • Leaves, Sod & Garden Waste – these can also be taken to either the Wolf Creek recycle site.  Leaves & garden waste can be taken to the green colored yard waste bins spread throughout the City for disposal.
    • Metal
    • Appliances including fridge, freezers, AC units etc. – all food must be removed
    • Furniture
    • Swing Sets & Trampolines  – please dismantle & separate according to metal/plastic components

       

      Items that will NOT be picked up or are recyclable:

    • Unmanageable piles & piles not sorted or separated
    • Hazardous Waste – oil, cleaning solutions, paint, antifreeze, aerosols, railway ties, etc.  The City offers this for residents in September.
    • Construction/Renovation Waste – drywall, concrete, roofing materials, fence & deck boards, porcelain toilets or sinks, etc.
    • Cardboard – please break down boxes and take to the Wolf Creek Drive recycle site for disposal.
