Kitchener launching street-by-street clean-up of storm debris on Wednesday
The City of Kitchener is beginning a street-by-street clean-up of storm debris on Wednesday after a severe thunderstorm caused damage throughout the region last week.
Residents are asked to bring trees, branches and debris to their curb for collection before 7 a.m. on July 7.
Storm debris must be separated from regular waste collection and should not block sidewalks or road access.
If you have tree branches & debris still in your yard after last week’s storm, please:
�� Bring debris to your boulevard before 7 a.m. on Wed, July 7
�� City crews will collect debris over the next few weeks. Please be patient!
�� If you see trees/limbs on a hydro line, call 911
Staff say all Kitchener streets will be cleared, but the high volume of storm-related debris means clean-up will likely take all month.
Smaller branches and debris will be picked up through the regular yard waste collection program.
Debris drop-offs at city leaf depots will not be accepted.
