Spring Clean-up 2020 - update June 9, 2020
**Due to COVID-19 disruptions in staffing, Spring Clean-up 2020 has been cancelled. Although Council and Administration are aware that residents appreciate this service, staffing limitations have put public works crews behind in their usual work tasks this year. Providing Spring Clean-up to residents in 2020 at this point would delay regular maintenance and additional projects that need to be completed. The Town will look at continuing this service in 2021. Please use local contractors for removal of unwanted items. or consider taking items to the landfill.**

Please see the document below for information about what items were and were not picked up as part of Spring Clean-up 2019.
