That windstorm was wild, scattering debris across Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills.
And we’re still cleaning up.
Halton Region is providing enhanced yard waste collection services following the May 4 storm to help to ensure branches and brush are removed.
“We want to make sure that all streets and neighbourhoods are safe and free of debris,” said Halton Regional chair Gary Carr.

Halton Region will provide extra yard waste collection this weekend, from May 12 to May 13.
Residents are asked to place debris at the curbside by 7 a.m. on Saturday and crews will collect material throughout the weekend.
Please remember the following before placing yard waste or brush piles at the curbside:
- Curbside piles are to be arranged neatly with branches no wider than three inches in diameter and branches no longer than six feet.
- There’s no limit to the amount of over-sized brush or yard waste bags that can be placed at the curbside.
- Over-sized brush collection services are only for households that currently receive yard waste collection from Halton Region.
Halton residents may also dispose their yard waste free of charge at the Halton Waste Management Site starting May 8 until the end of day on June 3.
The site is located at 5400 Regional Road 25 in Milton.
Regular fees will continue to apply to commercial contractors.
