Community Litter Pick-Up Program

Learn more about our Community Litter Pick-Up Program. 

Rocky View County supports communities to plan and host their own litter pick-up events! 

The Community Litter Pick-Up Program is available from May to June to support one-day litter pick-up events. Participating communities can receive supplies, like bags and gloves. The County can also help communities with litter pick-up safety tips and advertising. 

Following the event, communities can bring full orange litter bags to a designated County transfer site for disposal at no cost. Alternatively, advanced arrangements can be made for the County to pick up and transport litter bags to a transfer site. 

If you would like to sign your community up or need more information, please contact the Solid Waste and Recycling group at or call 403-230-1401.
