What are the new rules about yard waste?

Beginning this fall, yard waste (brush, leaves, weeds, grass) packaged in black or coloured bags will not be collected.

Yard waste will only be collected curbside if it is set out with compost. You can place yard waste in your cart, in brown paper bags, compostable bags, or clear plastic bags. Twigs and brush can be bundled and set beside your cart.

You can use: • Compost cart • Brown paper bags • Compostable or clear plastic bags •

Remember: •

String to tie bundles of brush and twigs Place leaves and small twigs in your compost cart

• The lid must be closed • No items can stick out of your cart

• Bundles of brush and twigs should be less than four feet in length, branches no more than two inches in diameter

• Maximum weight of cart: 50 kilograms or 100 pounds

• Additional leaves can be placed in brown paper bags, compostable or clear plastic bags and placed beside your compost cart
