Leaf, yard waste & branch collection starts Sept. 16

Posted On Monday September 09, 2019

Leaf, yard waste, and branch collection begins again on Monday, September 16.

Place leaf, yard waste, and branches out to the curb on your regular collection day, weekly until November 22. This waste must be set out in paper bags or reusable containers.

Branches must be bundled in sizes of no more than 1 metre or 3 feet. Bundled branches can be set on the ground or placed in paper bags or reusable containers. Bags and containers must weight less than 27 kilograms/60 pounds.

The following items cannot be included with leaf and yard waste: animal feces, dirt/soil, sod, flower pots, plastic trays, food scraps, root balls, tree trunks, stumps, plastic bags, glass, gravel, stones.

During leaf, yard waste, and branch collection weeks, a separate truck collects this waste and adds it to the compost pile at the City’s landfill (2590 Cornwall Centre Road). Residents can pick up free compost and woodchips year-round.

Outside of designated yard waste collection weeks, bags of yard waste are collected by the split-back garbage and recycling truck, as long as the bags do not exceed the 6-bag limit.
