Mission’s Spring Clean-Up rescheduled for end of September

Event runs from Sept. 21 to Oct. 2 and resident can set out two cubic metres of additional garbage

According to the District of Mission website, Spring Clean-Up 2020 has been rescheduled and will now run from Sept. 21 to Oct. 2, 2020.

Curbside collection residents may set out up to two cubic metres of additional garbage or bulky items on their regular collection day during that period of time.

One cubic metre is equivalent to about six bags of garbage or one stove.

Items set out for Spring Clean-Up must not be loose and must be manageable for two people.

Items that are excluded from Spring Clean-Up include all electronics, renovation waste, hazardous materials and vehicle parts.

Additional COVID-19 precautions may apply to this year’s clean-up event and will be advertised closer to the date of the event.

The District has also rescheduled its annual Household Hazardous Waste Day, which will now take place on Oct. 3.

On that day, hazardous waste can be dropped off free of charge. Drop-off day will take place at the Mission Recycling Depot from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
