Leaf and branch collection
Leaves are collected between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. on the following dates:
April 12 and 26
October 11 and 25
There will be the usual organic waste collection on these days, and you will also be able to put containers and bags filled with leaves at curbside.
- 80, 120- and 240-litre green rolling bins provided by the City
- Any reusable container with a maximum volume of 100 litres
- Cardboard boxes
- Paper bags (with or without cellophane)
Leaves are also accepted as part of the weekly organic waste collection. They should be put in the green rolling bin.
Leaf and grass recycling
These ecological practices involve leaving shredded fallen leaves and grass clippings on the ground after mowing so that they can break down into the soil. Leaves and grass are natural fertilizers.
May 1 to October 31
The branches are collected regularly by Public Works teams. It is not required to contact Public Works to make a request. Please allow 21 days for this collection.
For quicker and more efficient service, please follow the instructions below:
- Branches must be placed at curbside on your property.
- The cut end of the branches must be facing the street in order to make them easier to collect.
- There must not be any debris (soil, roots, metal, etc.) on the branches.
- The branches must be 10 centimetres (4 inches) or less in diameter.
(Branches over 10 centimetres in diameter can be brought to the Ecocentre.)
- The maximum height of all branch piles must be 1.2 metres (4 feet). Branches must be spread out instead of stacked whenever possible.
Branches cut off by a contractor hired to prune or fell a tree are the contractor’s responsibility. For ash trees, please consult a contractor.
