Community Recycling Day - A Huge Success!

main image

We'd like extend a big thank you to all the volunteers and community residents who participated in our Community Cleanup on Saturday May 16, despite the non-stop rain! We'd also like to thank the City of Calgary Waste and Recycling Services and all of the great recycling organizations who came out and helped our stuff find love again! 


We collected: 

- A cube truck full of clothing and household items for Women in Need

- 2 bags of mens clothing for the Mustard Seed

- 38 Bicycles for Bikes for Humanity

- 28 Car Seats to be recycled by KidSeat Recyclers

- A furniture delivery sized truck with electronic waste for the Electronic Recycling Association

- A massive trailer with scrap metal for Calgary Scrap Metal

- 69 tires for Liberty Tire / Kal Tire

- Three packer trucks full of household waste ( 9255kg) 

- Two packer trucks full of organic waste (2990kg) 


Our amounts were above average compared to communities who have been doing this for years - way to go Marda Loop! 

We also received $318.50 in cash donations which will allow us to hold an even bigger event next year - we're already looking forward to it!
