Spring Leaf Collection/Compost Yard

Spring Curbside Leaf Collection

The Public Works Department would like to inform residents that we will begin curbside leaf collection starting Monday April 25th.  We are asking residents to place the leaf bags at the curb for collection.  We are asking residents to follow the following guidelines:

  • Bags should be at the curb by 7:00 a.m.
  • Public Works will only accept items in paper leaf bags.  Items in plastic bags will not be collected.
  • Bags must not exceed 15kg

We are appealing to residents to be very patient with Public Works staff as we do our best to collect the overwhelming volume of bags from the curb!

Compost Yard Opening Dates

Residents who wish to deliver their leaf and yard waste to the Compost Yard located at 128 Patterson Crescent can do so starting on the following dates:

  • Saturdays - Starting May 7th – 8:00 a.m. to 12 noon
  • Wednesdays – Starting May 11th – 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The Public Works Department would like to remind residents that dropping materials at the gates of the Compost Yard when the facility is closed constitutes illegal dumping and is not permitted.
