Grass & Leaf Clippings

Notice on Christmas Trees

Beginning on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, residents can place real Christmas trees to the curb on their garbage and recycling collection day for pick up by the City. Trees must be free of ornaments, lights and garland. Collection of Christmas trees will continue for two weeks.

Mulching and composting leaves are earth-friendly ways to take care of your yard waste and save space in our landfill. Shred the grass and leaves with your lawn mower or a leaf shredder and use as mulch on your lawn and garden.

The City will collect leaves and grass at the curbside as well. Place your leaves in clear bags next to your garbage cart (or
inside if there is room). Remember to keep bags at least one metre from your garbage cart.

Items not accepted include: branches, stumps, root balls, driveway and road sweepings, animal waste, dirt and rocks.
