CLEANUP AND SAFETY
Volunteer Sandbag Cleanup: There will be a cleanup activity for Saturday, May 20th at 7am to pick up only the sandbags used to build the protective dikes. If you are interested in volunteering for this great community task, please come to the Municipal Garage located at 209 Sainte-Anne Street at 7 am on Saturday. We require people 16 years of age and older in good physical condition due to the weight of sandbags filled with water.
Sandbags: Starting now, citizens can put their sandbags used in the courtyard or basement at the curb, so that the city can gradually start collecting them.
Containers: 2 containers are placed in the following areas to be filled only with furniture and construction/demolition waste (floor covering, etc):
- 1 near 200 Sainte-Anne Street
- 1 near 192 Sainte-Anne Street
We ask you to place metals, electrical appliances and electronic waste next to the containers so that public works can recover and recycle them.
Additional garbage pickup: There will be an additional garbage pickup for affected residents, Saturday, May 20 as of 7 am. Please put your other residual materials (clothes, sporting goods, food, etc.) in garbage bags, by the curb before 7 am Saturday.
Cleaning kits: Citizens can come to City Hall during opening hours to get a free cleaning kit consisting of rubber gloves and a mask for mold. Some kits will be available for the volunteer sandbag cleanup of Saturday, May 20th.
