CLARENCE-ROCKLAND - May 26, 2022 - The City of Clarence-Rockland was one of the areas hardest hit by the May 21, 2022 storm. Never in our history have we had to clean up such damage throughout our municipality.

We have listened to your comments and are aware of the concerns regarding the ability of many residents to remove trees, branches, and stumps from their property. 

The landfill site remains open, and we thank all those who can come to dispose of their debris, as well as that of their families, friends and neighbors. You can also obtain a free open air burn permit at This permit is valid until June 30, 2022. 

If you are unable to, 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. 

We are therefore asking for the cooperation of residents with the following: 

  • Before Monday, May 30, move your trees, branches, and stumps to the curb, at least 1 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 our communications. Please help us get this message out to as many residents as possible.
