Leaf and Yard Waste Collection

Leaf and Yard Waste curbside collection is scheduled for this Saturday, May 12 at 8:00am for households in the Urban (Green Bin) service areas. 

Residents are asked to follow the below guidelines to ensure collection: 

  • Use only paper bags or use open-top containers (ie. a garbage can) that can be dumped; 
  • No plastic or compostable bags;
  • Set at the curb no later than 8:00am;
  • Any bundled twigs must be tied together and must not exceed 2 inches in diameter;
  • The bundle must be no longer than 3 feet, and no wider than 2 feet - so the bundle will fit into the designated slot in the truck;
  • Please ensure each bag or container does not exceed 44lbs, for safe lifting.

If you don't have time to rake before collection day or are located in a rural area, residential Leaf and Yard Waste can be delivered during operating hours to any Transfer Station at no charge. More information can be found at www.muskokarecycles.ca
