What is the program?
Every October and November, the Fall Leaf Collection program provides residents the option of having their fallen leaves picked up in paper yard waste bags for composting. The program does not accept branches, sod, soil or stumps. For other yard waste materials, please use the Yard Waste Recycling Site or the Waste and Recycling Centre.
How can I participate?
Bag your fallen leaves in paper yard waste bags. Please limit the weight of each bag to 25lbs or less.
311 between October 1 and November 15 during business hours and we will provide you an approximate pick up date.
Place your bags in the area where your garbage is normally collected, at least 3 feet from the cart, 24 hours prior to your scheduled pick-up date. Please close the top of the bag to ensure your leaves get picked up.
If your bags are missed, please call 311
Options for leaves and yard waste:
Residents can drop their leaves off at one of our
Yard Waste Recycling Sites.
Compost or mulch at home by starting your own
