Citizens can bring their broken tree branches due to last week’s ice storm at the end of Henri Street, near the Saint-Antoine Business Park. It is important to remember that several branches will be taken to this place so you are asked to stack them as much as possible in the same pile.

The Commission's Solid Waste Department is currently assessing the situation in order to set up a special collection for branches. This special collection will be deployed in the coming weeks to allow people to have the information and clean up from branches and broken trees.

In addition the efforts already made, the Canadian Red Cross will assist the elderly, people with reduced mobility or low income to cover extraordinary expenses not covered by their budget. Donations can be made on their website under New Brunswick Ice Storm 2017. UNI can also collect cash donations at its points of service under the Verglas Acadie 2017. Amounts raised will be given to the Associative Life and to the cooperative community committees of the affected regions.
