Canadians in other cities would find it hard to believe a report coming out of their City Halls reminding them of Fall and the fact that yard waste needs to be collected and disposed off correctly. But the City of Brampton isn’t taking any chances and is reminding residents to prepare their yards for cooler days.
“By keeping your property clean and free of debris, it helps keep the community clean for everyone to enjoy,” says Dave Wilson, director of Enforcement and Bylaw Services. “Caring for your property today will also help your lawn, bushes and trees healthy for the spring.”
Residents are also encouraged to removed wrecked or inoperative vehicles from their property or from the street. These restrictions have been put in place in order to maintain high standards of cleanliness and safety.
Furthermore the residents are reminded to pick weed, animal waste and debris from their properties as well as to ensure that grass is cut 20 cm (8 inches) or shorter, this measure goes a long way in maintaining lawn health.
Walkways, stairways and driveways that have cracks and holes which could be a hazard if covered by snow should also be taken care of by the owners.
Most Bramptonians may have already probably commenced the Fall cleanup in preparation for winter for others this might seem like a tall order.
