- 5th and Killoran Crescent
- 3rd and Watrous
- Hudson Bay Slough/old snow dump on Queensway
- Northwood and Milburn

Last year’s event saw 11 thousand kgs of litter collected throughout the city.
Residents can also take their garden and waste directly to the Foothills landfill today at no charge. Residents are reminded that no large appliances or hazardous materials will be accepted at the temporary bins.
