Leaf and Yard Waste

Leaf and yard waste includes leaves, small hedges or tree branches, garden trimmings, dead plants, etc. There is a NEW Leaf and Yard Waste Curbside Collection programme for urban residents in the County of Wellington starting in Fall 2020.

As of October 1, 2020 all six County of Wellington waste facilities accept leaf and yard waste from County of Wellington residents, free of charge.

Please note, grass clippings are not accepted as leaf and yard waste, and must be managed separately. 

Many residents may also choose to compost leaf and yard waste in their own backyard.
