The City of Estevan has announced details for its annual spring cleanup campaign.

ESTEVAN - The City of Estevan’s annual spring clean-up campaign, known as Operation Clean Sweep, is coming from May 9-15. 

On the first two days of the program, city crews will be picking up trash at the city entrances and outlying areas, as well as city-owned properties, including green spaces such as boulevards, medians, parks and natural areas.

Then on May 11 and 12, crews will be making their way through residential areas, with those in the north side of the community tended to May 11 and residents in the southern half the focus the following day. They will pick up contained organic waste material such as twigs, leaves and yard refuse placed in the front driveway.

Branches must be bundled in three-foot lengths and leaves and yard refuse must be bagged. Items must be on the driveway before 8 a.m. on May 12 for the north and May 13 for the south. Call-backs will not be accepted.

To end the week-long event, the City of Estevan landfill will be the site of a free landfill weekend. The event applies to City of Estevan residents and their residential waste only. Commercial waste will still be accepted, but regular tipping fees will apply. During the free landfill weekend, Freon appliances are not included.

Landfill hours are May 13 from 8 a.m.-8 p.m., and May 14 and 15 from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.

On May 14, the City of Estevan will be hosting a household hazardous waste collection day. Residents are welcome to bring their acceptable hazardous waste to 500 Bourquin Road from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Proof of residency is required.

Commercial properties will not be included in the operation, but the city appreciates the efforts made by commercial properties during the week to help beautify city streets.
