The City is asking residents to be patient with the collection of their garden waste. It’s now the peak of the leaf season and the collection teams are doing the best they can to collect it all. Please note that collection days might be delayed because of the high volume.
For your waste to be collected, please ensure:
- that it is placed at the curbside by 7 a.m. on your designated collection day;
- that your garden waste is in yard waste paper bags (available at local hardware or grocery stores); materials in any other type of bag (ex. plastic bags) will not be collected; OR
- that the garden waste is placed loose in an open container such as a plastic or rigid metal bin (please leave the lid open so the collection teams can easily see the contents);
- that the weight of any bag or containers does not exceed 20 kilograms (otherwise, they will not be collected);
that small branches are tied in bundles (maximum 5 cm in diameter and 1.2 metres long), with natural twine (not plastic rope).
