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.
For more information on the City's Leaf Pickup program, contact 3-1-1 from Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
