Reports indicate that the City of Clarence-Rockland was one of the hardest hit areas by the storm of May 22, 2022. Each and everyone of our residents have been affected in some way. We continue to ask our residents to share this information with friends, family and neighbours who may still have limited access to communications.

Landfill Site

  • The landfill site on Lalonde Road in Bourget is open free of charge from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm until further notice, for all types of waste including trees, branches, stumps and perished food.

Transfer Station

  • The transfer station on Industrielle Street remains closed until further notice, as this site cannot accommodate the needs after a storm of this magnitude.

Municipal Parks

  • Please use caution when visiting municipal parks and public spaces. Crews are currently addressing damages in these areas.
  • Paul Simoneau Natural Park in Rockland and Lavigne Natural Park in Bourget are closed until further notice due to damage.

Road Safety

  • We are asking residents to be careful on roads, as some are still littered with debris.
  • The priority is to restore power and our employees are working very hard, in collaboration with Hydro One teams, to clear branches and trees from the affected areas.
  • Please stay away from all downed wires as they may be reenergized and pose a significant risk to your health and safety.
  • Respect all cones and other temporary road signs; do not move them.

Open Air Fires

  • A special open air burning permit is now available.
  • This permit is free but will expire on June 30, 2022.
  • You can obtain the permit and full details at

We have been listening to your feedback and are aware of the concerns regarding the ability of many residents to remove debris from their property. We can assure you that we are assessing ways to help residents. We will communicate more on this next week.

Our priority now is to restore power to all residents in the municipality. To do so, our crews are working with Hydro One to clean debris on roads and critical infrastructure.

Right now, your best option is to bring your trees, branches and debris to the landfill site on Lalonde Road in Bourget.
