Curbside Leaf Pick Up

The Curbside Leaf Pick Up program provides residents with the opportunity to dispose of leaves directly at the curb.

Please be aware there is a two week no collection period between October 9 and October 26, where residents are able to tidy up their yards for the second collection.

Collection is for both Zone A and Zone B households on your regular waste collection day.
