Second Garbage Pickup Planned For Residents With Flood Damaged Materials

Monday August 18th, 2014, 4:43pm


Hello time traveller!!

The information listed below is likely outdated and has been preserved for archival purposes.

The City of Windsor has planned an additional garbage pickup for this Friday, August 22nd for residents that experienced flood damage due to heavy rainfall last week.

The city reports that there were 175 addresses registered for Monday’s original offering of special pickup service. Any garbage not picked up today from those registered addresses will be collected Tuesday morning.

Residents not registered for the first pickup can now do so for Friday’s second pickup.

They city says that even if you have called 311 to report flooding in your home, you must call again before Thursday at 7pm to request Friday’s pickup service, or your address will not be registered with collection crews. If you are having difficulty connecting through 311, you can also call 519-255-2489.

Residents are reminded:

A. Flood damaged materials include couches, rugs (cut and bundled in 4 foot lengths), furniture and building materials. Nails must be removed from all wood and dry wall.

B. Collection crews will not pick up appliances, electronics, metal items or 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 placed side by side. The hard sided garbage container by-law will be waived for this special collection only.

C. 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.

D. Please have flood-damaged material at the curb (not in the alley) by 6:00 a.m. Monday morning. Normal residential garbage pick-up continues in addition to pre-scheduled flood service pick-ups. Residents may also bring any flood damaged items to the Public Drop Off Depot – note that tipping fees will apply.
