Sandbags and sand are available free of charge for LaSalle residents, but the procedure for getting sandbags has changed.

Empty sandbags are no longer available at the self-fill locations. Residents must now call the Public Works Department at 519-969-4143 to register to receive empty sandbags.  Once registered, 100 empty sandbags will be delivered to the resident’s driveway. Delivery will take place weekdays, and can be delivered the same day if the resident registers by noon. Residents can request additional sandbags by calling the same phone number, however, photo proof of placement of the previous sandbags is required to guarantee additional delivery of bags.

Residents can then bring the bags to one of the free self-service sand filling stations at the former Centennial Arena site or at the LaSalle Public Works building. Residents must bring their own shovels and fill the sandbags on their own. As advised by the Windsor Essex County Health Unit due to COVID-19, when filling sandbags, follow the physical distancing guidelines and stay 6 feet away from anyone else who may be filling sandbags
