Town Clean-up Information

POSTPONED

New Dates: October 26th-30th

Clean-up Dates: October 19th-23rd

(Register now)

The Town will be holding its Fall Clean-up during the week of October 19th to October 23rd, which is the week following the week of the Thanksgiving statutory holiday.

*Please note, that there is currently a fire restriction in place, and as a result no burning permits are being issued. Because of this, the collection of any wood during fall clean-up will depend on whether or not the fire restriction is still in effect, and the wood pile at the dump can be burned. It is possible that no wood will be collected during Fall Clean-up this year. 


Town Clean-up occurs twice a year: once in the spring during the month of May, and once in fall during the month of October. During cleanup, you may register to have garden or yard waste and other refuse or household waste picked up from in front of your home and taken to the Transfer Station. Free compostable bags can be picked up at the Town Office (max 5 per person per visit). Please note that the pickup can not take any household hazardous waste (paint, spray cans oil, fuel, etc), toxic waste, or dangerous objects. All waste must comply with the transfer station regulations (click here to view regulations).

The Town will only collect yard waste from addresses that have been registered for a pickup!

To register for a pickup, please fill out the form on this page.

The Town will be doing pickups from a different section of Town each day during the week, so be sure to indicate your section of Town in the form, and make note of your pickup day (click on the map below for help identifying which section of Town you live in).

You must place everything at the curb where you regularly leave your garbage before 9:00am on your pickup day to guarantee it to be picked up. Town crews will pick it up sometime during the day.

Town Clean-up Pickup Registration

Provide a number you can be reached at during the day in case the pickup crews need to ask you a question.

Please indicate what type of waste you would like to have picked up so the Town crews will know what equipment they need to bring (wood chipper for sticks, flatbed truck for appliances/couches, etc.). The Town will pickup anything that is accepted at the transfer station, including items that require a permit if the proper permit has been obtained in advance. A full listing of items that are, or are not accepted at the transfer station is available on the garbage collection page (cardston.ca/garbage).

Please select the day for the section of town you live in. Refer to the map above if you need help.
