Township provides guidelines for storm debris cleanup

Collection of downed trees and branches could take a couple of weeks, residents told

A Township of Langley fire fighter tapes off a section of 236 Street near 32 Avenue on Saturday after a storm damaged power lines.

Wondering what to do with all the branches, tree trunks and stumps left behind by Saturday’s wind storm?

Residents in the Township’s collection zone are asked to put leaves and twigs into their Green Can. Smaller branches must be bundled with string.

Large piles of branches, tree trunks and stumps  piled on boulevards throughout the Township will be collected by municipal crews over the coming weeks.

All residents within the Township may call 604-532-7300 to arrange for pick up if storm-related debris has not been cleared by Sept. 14.

If there are any large branches, trees, or hanging debris on or above a roadway, call the Township.

Crews are still out in full force clearing downed trees all over Langley, with Allard Crescent being among the hardest hit areas.

The Township is also asking people to put their spoiled food into organic waste containers for pick up. Meat should be taken out of its packaging before it is discarded.

More than 750,000 BC Hydro customers were left without power on Saturday, making it the largest outage in this province’s history. The float homes in Fort Langley were the last to have power restored, leaving residents without potable water for four days.

The power outage also affected service George Preston ice arena and curling rink. The arena will be available for use on Sept. 8 and the curling rink will  reopen on Thursday, Sept. 17.
