The City of Clarence-Rockland was one of the areas hardest hit by the May 21, 2022 storm. A press release issued late in the day on May 26 explains that never in the city’s history has there been a need to clean up such damage throughout the municipality.

The city has made a series of arrangements to help residents remove trees, branches, and stumps from their property.

The landfill site remains open.  Free open air burn permits are available at This permit is valid until June 30, 2022.

City of Clarence-Rockland crews will begin the work of transporting trees, stumps, and branches from the curb at residents’ homes as early as next week.

The city is asking for the cooperation of residents with the following:
• Before Monday, May 30, move trees, branches, and stumps to the curb, at least one metre
from the road to ensure road safety.
• Since the damage is considerable, especially in the rural part of the municipality, it is impossible
to foresee an end date. This operation will take several weeks.
• During this operation, some roads may be closed without notice and traffic will be disrupted.
We ask that you respect our workers and remain vigilant.
• Please note that any other debris related to the storm will not be picked up.
• Due to the large amount of work our crews must do, some previously scheduled road work may
be postponed.

Many residents still do not have access to city communications. Please help get this message out to as
many residents as possible.
