Thanks to All Who Participated in Our Cleanup/Recycle Event!

On Sunday June 11, 2017, the DWCA - in partnership with London Drugs, eCycle Solutions, and the City of Calgary - held a very successful recycling event at the Downtown West-Kerby LRT Station.

We were a little worried on Saturday with all the rain, but overnight it cleared out and dried up nicely - and we enjoyed picture-perfect weather for the event!  And our president, in the role of head chef, served up free hot fresh-grilled burgers and cold drinks to all who stopped by.

We collected and recycled and shared many many items - lots of material diverted from landfills!!  PLUS, we collected a literal truckload of bicycles that were all donated to Syrian refugees.

Thanks to everyone who brought their items to the event and we hope to see you again next year!
