Community Clean-up for Silverado is Sunday, April 26th 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
We will be meeting at the Silverado Community Garden which is located at the intersection of Silverado Drive S.W. & Silverado Range Close S.W. at 10:00 am. We will have the community tent set up where volunteers can get gloves and garbage bags to pick up trash and help keep our community clean. We will debrief shortly after 10 am and review some maps of the community areas we need to cover. First we will clean up the community lands and the soccer fields where the Southwest United Tykes program has soccer each spring. We
will then break off into groups and clean areas of need around the community. If you have identified an area in need please let us know and we can send in a team of volunteers to help clean up that area. After doing the clean-up the first year (2013) we found there was a lot of garbage and dog poop that had accumulated in the community as Silverado did not have a clean-up in previous years. The second year (2014) that we did the clean-up there was noticeably less garbage and dog poop. To stay consistent from year to year and to ensure our community looks good any volunteer help we get is greatly appreciated.
Additionally this is a great opportunity for home owners to bring their spring cleaning garbage and discards as the City of Calgary garbage trucks will be present. Old couches or mattresses can be crushed by the trucks on site or any other households items you may have. Please note tires, household chemicals, car batteries, metals, home appliances, propane tanks, glass, paint, microwaves, liquids will not be accepted by the City of Calgary garbage trucks. Old electronics will also be accepted by the Community Association volunteers on this day to help you with disposal. Also on site there will be an organic garbage truck that will take leaves, branches, grass clippings, weeds, or other organic materials. This is a great opportunity for community members to spring clean their yard and home before the summer season.
For all volunteers that help in the Community Clean-up we will serve hot & cold drinks and lunch in appreciation for everyone involved with clean-up.
Hope to see you there.
