Annual Community Clean-Up Event

Every year the community of Mackenzie pulls together to help clean up our town. We would like to encourage all residents to participate in cleaning around your neighborhood. We will be having a “Curbside Pick Up” which gives you an opportunity to get rid of any old household items that may be taking up space. Hazardous drop off will also be available, where you can drop off Paint, Small Batteries, and old electronics at the Recreation Centre. There will also be a celebration BBQ for all those who participate. Further details will be available closer to the event date. Stay tuned for 2019 event details!

For any questions please contact Public Works at 250-997-3761.
