The fall edition of Operation Clean Sweep will be happening in mid-October this year, the city confirmed on Wednesday.

The clean-up will take place the weekend of Oct. 15-17. City residents are invited to take their waste to the Estevan Landfill for free that weekend.

"By that time in mid-October you're probably going to see a lot of leaves down on the ground..clean up the yard waste," said Norm Mack, Roads and Drainage Manager with the city. "So we're offering that free weekend."

The city does not accept any chemicals or tires. Refrigerators and freezers will also have a charge applied to them. Any yard waste such as leaves and branches will be free.

The landfill will be open on the Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Mack said residents can come between those hours and they'll be directed where to drop off their waste. Residents should also bring ID to prove they live in Estevan.

"The sole purpose of it is to keep our city beautiful," Mack said. "If you see garbage in the back lane that may not be on your property, feel free to go pick it up. "

"It's just a general clean up of our city before the snow flies."

The city also offers a spring version of Operation Clean Sweep where city staff go door to door in residential areas.
