Street cleaning and leaf collection
Stormy fall and winter weather can cause clogged catch basins to flood. Help prevent flooding in your neighbourhood by raking and clearing leaves from the catch basin in front of your home and putting the leaves into your green bin.
Street sweeping and clearing of leaves and debris will begin mid-November, but until then, we need your help to keep things unclogged and flowing.
Extra leaf collection from your home
Extra leaves in biodegradable paper yard waste bags will be collected city-wide by crews on the following designated weekends:
- October 29 to 30
- November 19 to 20
- December 10 to 11
- January 14 to 15, 2017 (Christmas trees will also be collected)
Leaves may be collected on either Saturday or Sunday (not both days). To avoid a missed collection, set leaves out for collection before 7:00am on the scheduled Saturday, and download the VanCollect app for collection reminders.
