What Do I Do With...?
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has confirmed Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Peel Region (Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga). If you have cut down an ash tree and have firewood or ash tree material to get rid of, please take it to your local Community Recycling Centre for proper disposal. Regular tip fees will apply. You may continue to set out brush and tree trimmings at the curb for yardwaste collection on your regular collection day. EAB is a highly destructive beetle which will kill ash trees. The area consisting of the Cities of Hamilton and Toronto, the Regional Municipalities of Chatham-Kent, Durham, York, Peel, Halton, Niagara and Waterloo and the Counties of Brant (including the City of Brantford), Elgin, Essex, Haldimand, Huron, Lambton, Middlesex, Norfolk, Oxford, Perth and Wellington, in Southern Ontario form one regulated area, meaning no firewood or ash tree materials can be moved outside of the area bounded by these municipalities. Affected trees will eventually die, however, trees do not need to be cut down or removed until they become a hazard. If residents suspect an ash tree on private property is infected, please contact a certified arborist to confirm.
