July 22 - The City of Fredericton is continuing its recovery efforts following the extensive damage caused by Tropical Storm Arthur.
Residents are asked to please place all Tropical Storm Arthur organic debris (i.e. trees, limbs, paper bagged leaves) curb side, and ready for pick-up beginning in the morning on Monday, July 28, 2014.
In order to facilitate pick-up, we are asking residents to gather debris in two separate piles:
Larger organic debris only.
Trees and limbs should be gathered in an unobstructed pile, away from power lines and other trees.
Leaves in compostable paper bags and smaller organic debris.
Limbs should be gathered in piles the same size as what is collected during the citywide "Spring Clean-up".
City crews and contractors will be collecting the larger piles of organic debris, while Trius will be collecting the smaller piles.
Please be advised that ALL DEBRIS must be curb side, as noted above, no later than Monday, July 28th, in the morning. Any debris left after the curb side collection finishes, will be the responsibility of the property owners.
We are asking for the public's patience as we move through the city collecting debris. It may take some time to collect the large debris, in particular.
The three City organic storm debris depots, located on Beek Court (compost facility), Two Nations Crossing, and in Silverwood will remain open from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. daily, until Monday, August 11, 2014.
Please note, wooden fences, building materials, or construction debris, garbage, or non-compostable items WILL NOT be picked up during the special Tropical Storm Arthur curb side collection.
Residents outside the city should call the Department of Environment and Local Government at 453-2838 for pickup information.
