March 2, 2007

City to provide special collection of tree limbs and branches on Monday, March 5 The Citys Solid Waste Management Services collection crews will provide special pick up of tree branches that were blown down as a result of the winter storm that hit the city in the past two days.This special pick up will be on Monday, March 5. The Citys regular yard waste collection begins the week of April 10.Here are some conditions that residents need to follow for the pick up to take place:all materials must be brought to the curbmaterials should be cut into three to four foot lengths (shorter for thicker branches)please bundle materials where possible do not include general yard waste or leaves.This special city-wide collection of materials will focus on heavily treed areas. If warranted, an additional collection date for materials will be considered for the following week. In areas where the long horned beetle is in existence, materials will be segregated from items collected in other areas.While the City of Torontos Solid Waste Division is working at full capacity today in terms of regular collections and transfer station operations, some delays can be expected as a result of the weather.There may be delays affecting regular collection scheduled for today due to downed power lines or tree limbs. Residents should leave their items out as they may be collected either later this evening or tomorrow.
