Debris removal after storm

Provincial road crews have been working diligently since Saturday to clear trees, branches and other debris from roads
to ensure driver safety.After debris removal from the roads is complete, provincial crews will assist with curbside debris pick-up from homes
and businesses over the next few weeks.

Yard/tree debris must be bundled and placed near the road following Island Waste Management Corporation (IWMC)
cleanup guidelines.

  • Twigs and branches should be bundled, tied and set out near the road
  • Make sure debris does not block traffic or pedestrian access
  • Each item (or bundle) must be less than 50 lb. and be 4 ft. or less in length
  • Do not use plastic bags, feed bags, or cardboard boxes for cleanup material

Yard/tree debris will not be collected with compost cart collection, but only through this special storm cleanup effort.
Regular compost collection will be limited to household organics only during this period.

Twigs, branches and storm debris 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
(8am-4:30pm – Monday through Saturday) until September 21. Bulk loads do not need to be bagged or tied.

Visit Island Waste Management Corporation for drop-off site locations. Some sites currently do not have power and
these locations will remain closed until services are restored. IWMC’s website will be updated as drop-off sites reopen.
Charlottetown and Summerside also have debris collection plans in place for their residents, however residents are still
welcome to drop-off debris at IWMC sites.

Municipalities or businesses with large loads of debris should contact IWMC directly to arrange drop-off.
