Ward 11 News: September 2014 snowfall update

  • Share

Ward 11 official website

Thank you Calgary for pitching in and helping City crews and your neighbours clean up after our recent snow storm.

The City continues to have jumbo crews cleaning up priority debris in communities across Calgary.  The City’s focus remains on taking care of critical safety issues and ensuring public spaces are safe and accessible.

The City Links program will be able is available to assist seniors and those who are physically challenged and who have extensive tree damage on their properties due to the recent storm. You can call 311 and ask for the “Seniors Home Maintenance” Service Request, or fill out an online service request

The City is also providing the following options to assist Calgarians with their clean up efforts:

  • All three City Landfills are operating under extended hours from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. until further notice to accommodate tree debris. Tipping fees continue to be waived for all tree debris that is not mixed with other garbage.
  • Beginning Saturday, September 13, citizens can access all 33 of The City’s leaf & pumpkin drop-off locations to dispose of damaged tree limbs.

Thank you to our Community Associations across the city for accommodating the early opening of the leaf and pumpkin drop-off locations!

Calgary’s community spirit has continued to shine through, and I encourage you to continue helping your neighbours by picking up, pitching in and pulling together.  Help those who are unable to clear small tree debris, like small branches and leaves, from their properties. Please don’t put yourself at risk by trying to pull down big branches or move large pieces of fallen debris.  If you can help with the small debris, we can get to the big stuff faster.

Thank you for your patience as cleanup efforts continue throughout the coming days and weeks. This effort will take time.  Please stay safe and don’t put yourself at risk while helping!
