Clean-Up Week

Clean-Up Week

The District of Stewart has a Spring Clean Week and has also done a special Fall Clean-up as well. There are NO other dates for this type of pick up. During this period, residents are requested to make a special effort to clean up their properties and take advantage of additional equipment that will be made available by the District.  Here are some details to keep in mind when placing your items curbside.

During the District of Stewart’s Clean-Up Week, Public Works will pick up extra refuse (such as raked grass & leaves, branch trimmings, etc.) that residents have cleaned from their yard.

Guidelines

  • Branches must be tied in bundles not exceeding 1 meter (3.28 feet) in length or 0.6 metre (2 feet) in any other dimension.
  • Construction or demolition waste will not be collected.
  • Commercial or business waste will not be collected.
  • Do not set out hazardous waste materials (such as propane tanks, household cleaners, paint and paint related materials, lawn and garden chemicals, oils, and batteries and oil tanks) during Clean-Up collection.
  • Vehicle parts should not be set out for collection. They should be drained of hazardous fluids and disposed of at a scrap metals pile at the landfill.
