Fall Clean-up

Member-Required Event: Clean-up your ward communal spaces with your neighbors over the weekend of November 5-6, 2022! More details from your Ward Rep.

Annual Fall Clean-up Event

November 5-November 6, 2022

The fall clean-up is scheduled for Saturday, November 5, and/or Sunday, November 6, 2022

Meeting Time + Place

Your Ward Rep will email you with specific details, as each ward will have an individual meeting time that will vary by time and location. Plan on a tentative start time between 8:00am-9:00am! 

Membership Participation:

All co-op members are required to participate in the bi-annual (fall and spring) cleaning of our grounds, as segmented by ward. Non-members are also welcome to participate in our grounds’ beautification, a fun and rewarding experience. No sign-in at the event is required; however, your work is crucial toward maintaining low monthly rental rates, with our bi-annual clean-ups saving our co-op thousands of dollars. 

Cannot Attend?

If your household is unable to attend, you must email your Ward Rep for instruction toward a makeup, or alternative, assignment. Fulfillment duty alternatives include pre-clean up assignments within your ward, stocking laundry room supplies, extra cleaning in Monarch way station, peace garden or fruit garden or additional laundry duty. 

Task List:

Community Grounds

Each ward will receive equipment - rakes, brooms, garbage bags, etc. - to collect leaves, twigs and branches, trash, and other unwanted items for the occasion. For efficiency, please complete the following: 

Snow Shovels
Laundry + Storage Rooms
CTC Compost Update (November 2022):

Our co-op’s compost bins are closed until further notice. During this time, the bins are only accepting plant debris/trimmings (grass, garden weeds, leaves, small twigs). 

Please do not discard anything other than plant trimmings into the bins while closed (especially NO household food scraps!). Visit for full details and updates.

Additional Reminders

Clutter + Debris Policy and Yard Inspections

Ongoing Household Requirement + Upcoming Inspections

Residents are responsible for removing all possessions and external items and/or growth. Yard Inspections take place one week after clean-up day. Respective noncompliance fees will occur if applicable.

Continuously Keep Outdoor Spaces Tidy

Eliminating all yard and outdoor clutter is an on-going requirement for all residents to fulfill year-round, per CTC's Clutter + Debris Policy. In which case, Yard Inspections can occur at any time throughout the season without notice; thus, continuously keep yard spaces neat and tidy to avoid incurring violation fees.

Clear Out Community Garden Plots

Community Garden Plot holders: All garden plots need to be cleared by Sunday, Oct. 17, 2022. More details and directions emailed to individual gardeners.
