Residents living east of Walker Road who experienced flood damage are reminded that a special garbage pick up is planned for this Friday.

This special pick-up is for residents who do not have a paid contractor working on their properties, as paid contractors are responsible for taking any damaged materials to the landfill.

The city offers these guidelines to prepare your flood damaged materials for pick up:

  • Flood damaged materials include; mattresses, appliances, rugs (cut and bundled in 4 foot lengths), furniture, and building materials( bundled, bagged or placed in pails). Nails must be removed from all wood and drywall. Appliances must have doors secured shut.
  • Collection crews will not pick up loose material. All loose items must be placed at the curb in garbage bags weighing no more than 20 kilograms (44 pounds). Bags should not be stacked but rather placed side by side. The hard-sided garbage container by-law will be waived for this special collection only.
  • Household chemical waste, paint cans, and other chemicals are not to be placed at the curb. Please visit the Household Chemical Waste Depot for proper disposal of those items.
  • Please have flood-damaged material at the curb (not in the alley) by 6am on Friday morning, October 7th, 2016. Normal residential garbage pick-up continues in addition to pre-scheduled flood service pick-ups.

Residents living west of Walker road who experienced flooding this past week are asked to contact 311 to register for collection of flood items.
