Sayward is gearing up for some spring cleaning.

‘Clean Up Days’ returns to the village this month, giving locals a chance to get rid of household waste that’s too large for regular curbside collection.

This includes recyclables that normally need to be taken to Campbell River for proper disposal.

The Main Road Yard on the Island Highway will be hosting the annual event April 17th and 18th, from 9:00 am till 4:00 pm on both days.

Accepted items include scrap metal, household furniture, large and small appliances, car and truck tires, batteries, household electronics, and all ProductCare items including paint and thinners, old gasoline in approved containers, lightbulbs, ballasts and some pesticides.

However, drywall, unlabelled or unidentifiable Household Hazardous Waste, diesel, motor oil, filters or antifreeze including empty containers, fertilizers, and compressed gas cylinders will NOT be accepted. For more details, visit this website.

This year, Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Campbell River will also be on-site to collect gently used household items for donation. Click here for more information on accepted items.
