Spring roadside cleanup

Roadside clean up postponed

In light of direction received from public health authorities in Alberta on COVID-19, Strathcona County is postponing the spring roadside cleanup to limit the spread of the virus and, ultimately, to keep our employees, customers, community and visitors healthy and safe. Applicants will be contacted directly.

Please note: Depending on timing, there is the potential that the Roadside Cleanup Program may need to be cancelled for 2020.

Every year non-profit groups help remove unwanted litter from select roadside ditches, while fundraising for their non-profit group or charity. Their efforts help to improve the look of our community.
