CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

The City of Charlottetown is offering free tree debris pick-up from Sept. 11 - 20 to help property owners clean up trees damaged during hurricane Dorian.

Multiple public works crews will pick up branches and tree debris throughout the city over the next 10 days.

The public is asked to have everything curbside as soon as possible to not miss collection in their area.
Ensure any branches or limbs piled at curbside are in four-foot bundles, weighing a maximum of 50 pounds, as per Island Waste Management Corporation (IWMC) standards.

Bundles should be placed on the property near, but not on, the roadway, cycling lane or sidewalk.

The bundles should not be placed on sidewalks, roadways, shoulders of the road or in cycling lanes because the debris would become an additional hazard for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

Free drop-off, extended hours at IWMC centres  

Twigs, branches and storm debris can also be taken free of charge to any IWMC Waste Watch Drop-Off Center until Saturday, Sept. 21.

Starting Wednesday, Sept. 11, all IWMC drop-off centres will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday - Saturday until Sept. 21. Bulk loads do not need not be bagged or tied.
