Ice Storm Cleanup Update
Here is a Press Release issued by the city of Kitchener:
Ice storm debris clean-up starts today
KITCHENER – Today, the city’s operations crews will begin removing all tree limbs and branches on boulevards street by street. From April 14 – May 2, all streets will be inspected and all limbs will be removed and chipped on site.
Once each street has been cleared, crews will not return.
To help us get to as many streets in the city by May 2, residents can help by bundling branches from trees on private property for collection as part of the region’s yard waste program or take it to the landfill. Limbs cut and tied into bundles not exceeding 90 cms (36 inches) in length will be picked up as part of the program.
Leaf drop-off sites are not available for limbs and branches. They are used in the fall to assist in the removal of leaves. The drop-off sites are typically parking areas within parks and need to be clean and accessible for park users.
The first priority is to get the streets cleaned up and then city crews will focus on getting the parks prepared for spring use.
