Spring Cleaning in Banff
Wildfire Hazards Cleanup Day
Saturday, May 9
Banff’s FireSmart Program wants all Banff property owners to participate in a vegetation and yard debris cleanup day. Homeowners are encouraged to spend a few hours in their yards reducing accumulations of vegetation and debris that contribute to wildfire spread when fire danger climbs later in the summer.
Visit banff.ca/FireSmart to learn how to do your wildfire hazard cleanup. Download your free copy of the FireSmart Homeowner’s Manual or Mobile APP at: firesmartcanada.ca.
Free pickup starts May 11
Gather up all your branches, stems and yard debris for collection during community collection days. Please ensure it is only vegetation (no building materials or garage/basement junk). No stems thicker than 10 cm/4 inches and none longer than
3 metres/10 feet. Please call 403.762.1240 to schedule your pickup.
We’re sweeping dirt and debris from the roads. Please obey all temporary no parking signs. To find out the schedule visit banff.ca/sweeping.
Large Item Pick Up
Schedule an unwanted item pickup by calling 403.762.1240 or fill out the online form at pickup.banff.ca. Don’t just dump things by garbage bins. We’re still scheduling pickups of furniture, appliances, etc. This is a free service for residents.
