Protect Banff when you clean
Are you spring cleaning? Don’t leave unwanted items by neighbourhood garbage and recycling bins, which can attract bears and leave our town unsightly. Schedule a free pickup and the Town of Banff will collect your unwanted items from your curb. Learn what can be collected, and select your date for pickup at banff.ca/ItemPickup.
