Free Tree Debris Pick-up Begins this Week

Free Tree Debris Pick-up Begins this Week
Posted on 09/10/2019
The City of Charlottetown is offering free tree debris pick-up from September 11 - 20 for property owners in the Capital City whose trees sustained damaged during hurricane Dorian.

The public is asked to ensure any branches or limbs being piled at curbside are in 4-foot, manageable bundles (maximum 50 pounds) as per Island Waste Management Corporation (IWMC) standards. The bundles should not be placed on sidewalks, the roadway, the shoulder of the road, or in cycling lanes because the debris can become an additional hazard for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. Residents should place the bundles on their properties near, but not on the roadway, cycling lane or sidewalk.

Multiple public works crews will be picking up branches and tree debris in various areas throughout the City over the next 10 days. The public is asked to have everything curbside as soon as possible to not miss collection in their area.

Twigs, branches and trees can also be taken free of charge to any IWMC Waste Watch Drop-Off Centers until Saturday, September 21, 2019. Effective Wednesday, September 11, all drop-off centres will be open extended hours (8-4:30 Monday through Saturday) until September 21. Bulk loads do not need not be bagged or tied.
