Public Service Announcement - Reminder

Debris Clean Up

(September 6, 2010) Residents are reminded that private property trees are the responsibility of the owners. Limbs and branches no longer than 4 feet and no bigger than 8 inches around can be bundled and placed curb side for pick up. To assist residents with clean up, the maximum number of bundles has been increased to 10 per household. Crews will begin pick up on Tuesday morning in those areas where organic collection is already scheduled, and in other areas on organic collection day.

Municipal crews have been working diligently collecting debris within the Right of way from municipally owned trees. The work will continue until all debris is collected. Crews worked Saturday and Sunday, and will resume clean up activities Tuesday. Park crews will continue to assess parks and open spaces commencing Tuesday. Once completed parks will open to the public.

If you have leaves you cannot use as mulch, place them in the green cart. Excess leaves can be placed alongside the cart in colourless clear, orange plastic or heavy paper bags ONLY. There is a 20 bag limit for curbside collection with a max weight limit of 25 kg (55lb) per bag.
