The Municipality provides several services and programs to keep our community clean. We ask everyone to please dispose of their waste properly.
What Can I do to Help?
- Residents are encouraged to help out by simply picking up litter and debris in and around their own property. Litter or garbage on private property is the responsibility of the property owner.
- The Municipality provides year round solid waste collection for residents along with providing the Community Clean-up Program, Toxic Roundup, Large Item for Seniors, and the Community Yard Waste Site. The Crowsnest Pincher Creek Landfill accepts solid waste which the Municipality pays the tipping fees for residents if under 500kg.
Large Item Residential Pick-Up for Seniors and Residents with Disabilities
Residents over 60 years old and those with disabilities qualify to have up to 3 large items picked up for disposal from their curb. Residents must fill out a form available at the Municipal Office to arrange for pickup.
*Items must be placed on the curbside, crews will not retrieve items from your home or yard.
Application forms will be available at the Municipal office beginning May 3. Application deadline is May 20, with pick-ups scheduled for Tuesday May 25 to Friday, May 28. Items may be placed out for pick-up starting May 22.

Crowsnest Community Cleanup
The Municipality offers a Community Clean-up program each spring and fall that allows residents to bring all household items to the Community Clean-up locations for convenient disposal. Any resident of the Crowsnest Pass can bring their items to any location in the Crowsnest Pass, regardless of which community they reside in. There is no limit to the number of trips any person can make to the clean-up.
This program allows residents to drop off all household items as well as large items such as furniture, tires, fence boards, or appliances; fridges and freezers containing Freon will be charged a $30.00 fee that must be purchased in advance at the Municipal Office prior to bringing to the site. For more information, please call 403-562-8833.
Community Clean-up is not intended for commercial or large amounts of construction materials; no toxic materials will be accepted including oil, paint, electronics, etc.
A Toxic and E-Waste Round-up is NOT scheduled for Spring 2021. Dependent on COVID requirements and contractor availability, it may be scheduled in Fall 2021.
If you have any questions regarding the type of items that will be accepted, please call 403-563-2220.

Spring Street Sweeping
Street Sweeping for the 2021 season has commenced in the commercial areas of our communities.
As the Street Sweeping crews move into the residential areas and from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, signs will be posted in the area the day before street sweeping is expected to commence. Residents are asked to move their vehicles from the road when street sweeping is happening in your area. We also ask if you could kindly pass the word on to any neighbours who may not have received notification that the sweepers are in the area.
Please keep an eye out for street sweeping equipment, and use caution when travelling near them.
Please obey any "No Parking" signs.
Please be advised that boulevard cleaning will not be done by the Municipal crews as the equipment is too heavy to be on the boulevards and causes damage.
Please rake your boulevard prior to the scheduled sweeping.
For more information, please call the Operations Department at 403-563-2220.
No Dumping in the Frank Industrial Area
The lot next to Devlin’s Towing in the Frank Industrial Park is a NO DUMPING area. It is illegal under Alberta’s Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act to dump on public or private property without consent. Violators will be prosecuted.
Please ensure disposal of waste and metal is done properly at the Crowsnest Pincher Creek Landfill.
