Leamington Ice Storm Cleanup Update – March 8, 2023

Default Interior

The Municipality of Leamington is nearing completion of its first round of curbside collection of downed branches that fell because of the February 22, 2023 ice storm.

The Municipality is in the process of scheduling a second and final collection for all Leamington urban and rural neighbourhoods. To guarantee branch collection, residents must have their branches placed curbside by Monday, March 20, 2023. Please do not place branches curbside after this date.

As a reminder, Leamington residents can place small branches curbside for collection. Please do not block roads, sidewalks, or driveways. Residents are asked not to bundle or place branches in a yard waste bag or container, as municipal staff will be using a chipper to shred branches. Please note that the Municipality will not enter private property to clean up trees or branches.

If you can manage your branches on your own, we ask that you please do so. Branches can be brought to the EWSWA Transfer Station #2 located at 2021 Albuna Townline (County Rd. 31). Stumps/branches under 18" in diameter, and less than 48" long are accepted free of charge. Stumps/branches over 18" in diameter, but less than 36" in diameter, and less than 48" long are accepted but regular tipping fees apply.

Weekly yard waste collection in the urban area begins April 5, 2023 and continues through to November 24, 2023. Branches remaining at the roadside in April will have to be cut and tied in bundles not to exceed 48” long and 24” in diameter.  Please refer to the 2023 Collection Calendar for additional details at leamington.ca/garbage.

If you see a branch on an electrical wire, do not touch it and report it immediately to your electricity provider.
