FREDERICTON – The City of Fredericton is reminding residents that Monday morning is their only opportunity to leave debris from post-tropical storm Arthur at curbside for pickup.

Hundreds of trees toppled in the New Brunswick capital during the July 5 storm.

The city’s waste collection managers have issued a news release saying any debris that isn’t left out this morning will be the responsibility of property owners.

The city says it will pick up trees, limbs and bagged leaves from the curb.

It is encouraging people to leave the sawed-up logs in one pile, and the leaves and smaller waste in a separate pile.

The leaves must be in compostable paper bags.
