City helps residents clean up after storm

Free disposal of large branches

Red Deerians with large tree branches littering their yards from the recent wind storm can dispose of them at the city’s snow storage facility at 6859 Edgar Industrial Dr.

Residents can drop off branches free of charge May 26 to May 29, from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Garbage, sod, or other yard waste material will not be accepted at the Edgar site.

Branches can be disposed of in the following ways:

  • Small branches up to 2.5 centimetres (one inch) in diameter and up to 1.2 metres (four feet) long can be set out for regular yard waste collection. Branches should be bundled and tied with a string. There is no limit on the amount of yard waste as long as it’s contained properly.
  • Branches larger in diameter or longer can be dropped off at the Edgar Industrial Drive snow storage facility until May 29.
  • Diseased branches or elm wood must be taken to the landfill for burial and cannot be put out for yard waste collection or taken to the snow storage facility.
