The spring leaf and yard waste collection will begin on Monday, April 22nd and continue through the entire month of May.
Residents are asked to place leaf and yard waste at the curb along with their regular solid waste prior to 7 am on their regular collection day. The leaf and yard waste is collected by a separate designated truck.
Leaf and yard waste must be contained in paper bags or reusable containers such as garbage cans or blue boxes. Plastic bags containing leaf and yard waste will not be collected during these special pickup periods.
Outside of these special collection periods, residents are encouraged to:
- Use mulching techniques to reduce volume of leaves
- Use backyard composters
- Deliver leaf and yard waste (please no shrubs, large branches or brush) to the City’s Compost Facility located at the City Landfill Site. Please de-bag all leaves contained in plastic bags.
The leaf and yard waste that is collected by the City is unloaded at the Landfill Site where it is turned over to create a rich compost material that is offered to residents free of charge for use in their gardens.
If you have any questions about the program, please call (613) 937-1777.
