The Strathcona BIA (SBIA) has launched a new pilot program called the Private Property Debris Cleanup Program. This initiative will assist business and property owners with cleaning up and properly disposing of debris and hazardous waste that has been illegally dumped on private property. The program is intended for larger volumes of debris like furniture, large electronics, household garbage in excess of two large bags and for hazardous waste and needles. The following will not be removed through the program unless they are in a large enough volume:
-Smaller one off pieces of furniture (chairs, small side tables, lamps etc.)
-Smaller one off electronics
-Monitors, small appliances etc.
-Small amounts of discarded needles (please call the safety team at 604-789-4143 for removal)
Initially, each individual property will be eligible for 3 removals until the end of March 2018.
To facilitate faster cleanup please email photos of debris to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For debris on public property (sidewalks, road and lane) please contact 311. If you are unsure whether debris is located on public or private property please contact the SBIA office, ideally with photos.
For debris on a neighboring private property, contact would have to be made with the appropriate owner by SBIA staff before a cleanup request can be processed.
The service is provided through Mission Possible Enterprises.
Hours and response times:
- Monday – Friday
- 7am – 5pm
- Cleanup within 36 hours* of receiving confirmation email (excluding weekends)
*Response time is dependent on priority, severity and call volume.
