UPDATE ON LEAF PROGRAM

 With the weather forecasted over the weekend, the C will not commence the VLCP on Monday.   

SNOW CLEARING

 The City's winter maintenance crews clear City roads, priority sidewalks, bus stops and pedestrian crossings within 12-36 hours after the end of a snowstorm. Back to back storms will extend this timing. Local or residential streets are plowed after priority roads are clear. The City's first priority is safety and access to emergency vehicles and transit.


Please remember to be a good neighbour by helping older adults and people with disabilities clear their snow. Please keep your sidewalks clear of ice to help people travel to school, work and appointments.

LEAF PICK UP PROGRAM

What if more leaves fall after the scheduled leaf collection?

Here are your options for disposing leaves:


The Region of Peel will also pick up leaves on your regular waste collection day until December 12, 2019. Leaves must be placed curbside in open, reusable containers such as bushel baskets, labelled rigid plastic containers or paper yard waste bags weighing less than 20 kgs (44 lbs) when full. 

Do not use plastic bags.


You can also compost your leaves or spread them around the base of your trees. Leaves will fertilize the soil and act as a buffer against extreme temperatures.  Remember that oak leaves are difficult to compost.
