Spring has arrived and 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 pickup
Spring includes the return to yard work and yard waste pickup. Collection resumes every two weeks beginning the week of April 4, until the end of November. Check the waste calendar, download the free Recycle Coach app or visit georgina.ca/WasteandRecycling for details. Contact Green For Life at 1-866-421-5625 or email@example.com with any collection concerns.
April 17 to 24 is Pitch-In Week across Canada. Residents can participate by helping to clean up areas in the community as individuals, families or groups. The Town will provide gloves and bags which can be picked up at the Civic Centre or any branch of Georgina Public Library. Contact Service Georgina at 905-476-4301, ext. 3001 or firstname.lastname@example.org once waste is collected so staff can dispose of it appropriately. To learn more about the event, visit pitch-in.ca.
Clear out the clutter in your home! Curbside Giveaway begins April 23 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.
Watch for street sweeping operations to begin as early as the week of April 11, 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 clean the roadway.
Electronic recycling event and Swap n’ Sell
Join us at the Ice Palace on Saturday, May 14 from 8 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.
Did you know the Town of Georgina offers an adopt-a-road program? This volunteer opportunity benefits everyone who lives, works, or plays in Georgina by helping to keep roadways safe and litter free for all. Anyone can adopt-a-road and make a meaningful contribution to keeping Georgina beautiful.
