Sarnia to help pick up storm debris next week

Journal Staff

Sarnia is adding a brush and yard waste collection day in response to last night’s storm.

The pickup runs from Sept. 27 to Oct. 1 on the regular collection day of residents, and there is no limit on the volume of brush collected, provided it is properly contained, City Hall said today.

Yard waste and brush should be separated because they are collected by separate trucks.

Where possible, the city’s contractor, Marcotte Disposal, has asked that residents separate the items on each side of the driveway, with yard waste on one side and brush on the other.

It is required that:

* Brush be tied in bundles with compostable jute or twine, or placed in a container marked on both sides with an ‘X.’ They should not exceed 22 kilograms (48 pounds). Brush cannot be placed in paper bags or piled loosely at the road.

* Yard waste can be set out in paper bags, or in lidless containers with drainage holes and marked with an ‘X’ on both sides.

* Bundles and containers should be set on the boulevard after 6 p.m. the previous night, or before 7 a.m. on waste collection day.
