Reminders of the severity of that December ice storm are laid out along many of the rural roads in Burlington.  The last chance to get rid of most of that brush brought about by the December ice storm will be between May 20th and May 30th.

The Region is currently providing bulk brush collection in the designated urban yard waste service areas and using all the resources they have to collect over sized bulk brush material.

Halton Region is providing a one-time extension of the special bulk brush collection program. Bulk brush will be collected one time for each household during the following date:

Burlington Area 8 – May 20 to May 30

Halton residents and contractors can continue to drop off yard waste and bulk brush until June 30, 2014, free of charge at the Halton Waste Management Site.

Bulk brush must be placed in one pile no larger than 6 m long by 1.8 m wide x 1.2 m high (20 ft. long by 6 ft. wide by 4 ft. high), with branches a maximum of 1.8 m (6 ft.) in length and 7.5 cm (3 inches) in diameter for the safety of the collection crews and to prevent damage to the collection trucks.

Bulk brush larger than the specified dimensions will not be collected.
