Cornwall Ontario – In order to facilitate clean-up, the City of Cornwall is temporarily suspending tipping fees at its landfill site for loads of tree debris from the storm. The moratorium on tipping fees will take effect on July 26 and end on August 6.
City crews and their contractor are hard at work removing fallen branches and other damaged items from public property after the storm incident on Friday night.
City residents are asked to respect City bylaws when it comes to cleaning up private property. Private property owners are responsible to remove any debris from damaged trees on their property at their own expense.
Residents can also place tree debris at the curb along with their regular waste on their regular collection day. Branches must be tied in bundles measuring no longer than 3 feet in length. All other small debris such as leaves and clippings can be bagged or placed in containers. There is no limit on the number of bundles, bags or containers, however each one must not exceed 60 lbs.
