 Yard waste - Tree branches


​Compost it - Green Cart

Tree branches, hedge prunnings and trunks that are less than 15 cm (6") in diameter can be put in the green cart. Branches should be shorter than 1.25 metres so they can fit inside the green cart.

If your green cart is full, extra branches can be placed in paper yard waste bags or bundled together with natural fibre string. Set the tied branches or bags at least 30 cm (1 ft.) to the side of your cart. Do not lean the branches or bags on the cart or place on top of the cart lid.

Every year from mid-April to the end of May spring yard waste is also accepted at the City landfills at no charge.

If you take mixed loads of yard waste with garbage to the landfill, basic sanitary waste charges will apply.
