Residents will be able to start placing leaves & garden (yard) waste curbside on Monday, October 5th. There is no specific week for yard waste as we have a new process this year. Please remember - No Branches, No Woody Materials, No Bags ... If your pile is skipped, it is because it contained unacceptable material OR the pile was inaccessible due to car(s) parked too close to the leaf pile OR parked on the leaf pile. Leaves collected are taken to a composting facility that can't accept woody materials or bags. **Branches and Wood Materials can be taken to the City Drop Off Site during open hours until Saturday, December 5th.
There is no set schedule, however, every effort will be made to collect leaves weekly, weather permitting. Our intention is to have all leaves collected by Wednesday each week, so if you'd like them picked up that week, please make sure to place them curbside before Monday morning. Please keep leaf piles a minimum of 10' away from storm drains to prevent storm sewers from getting clogged. There may be times we won't be able to fully complete leaf collection of the 110 miles of curb-line due to other priorities which may need attention, so we ask for your patience.
In order to ensure that there are no leaves or yard waste left in the streets before the snow flies, all leaves must be raked curbside by 6am Monday, November 23rd for the final leaf pick-up of the year. Should leaves be placed in the street after November 23rd and the City experiences winter weather conditions or heavy rainfall after that date, the leaves will be removed and the property owner will be charged a minimum of $180 removal fee with no notice.
