Get ready to spring clean in Georgina

You are here

Now is the time to clear out the clutter, in and around your home! The Town of Georgina has a number of spring-cleaning activities to keep our Town beautiful and help you get rid of unwanted items. 

Yard waste pick up

Spring includes the return to yard work and yard waste pickup. Collection resumes every two weeks beginning the week of April 8, until November. Check your waste calendar, download the free Recycle Coach app on your mobile phone or tablet or visit for details. Contact Green For Life at 1-866-421-5625 or with any collection concerns. 

Pitch-In week

April 22 to 29 is Pitch-In Week across Canada. Residents can participate by helping to clean up areas in the community as individuals, families or groups. If you are interested in organizing a litter pickup team here in Georgina, call customer service at 905-476-4301. We will register your participation and provide gloves and bags.

Curbside giveaway

Clear out the clutter in your home! Curbside Giveaway begins April 27 and runs monthly until October. Put your unwanted items at the curb from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Other residents/neighbours can then take these items free of charge. Any unclaimed items must be removed by 5 p.m. and can only be put to the curb on the selected dates.  

Street sweeping

Watch for street sweeping operations to begin as early as the week of April 8, weather permitting. This annual cleaning event removes winter sand from Town roads. If you have sand on your driveway or sidewalk, sweep it onto the edge of the road for removal by the street sweeper. Avoid parking on Town streets during this time, to allow sweepers to properly clean the roadway. Follow Town channels for an exact start date.

Electronic recycling event and Swap n’ Sell

Join us at the Ice Palace on Saturday, May 11 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. for this popular annual event. Find some deals at the Swap n’ Sell and dispose of any unwanted electronics before you leave. Remember to remove batteries and erase anything stored on your electronic devices before recycling. Vendor participation is free with a donation to the Georgina Community Food Pantry. Prior registration is required.
