Fall Leaf and Yard Curbside Collection, November 2020

Fall leaves

Fall leaves on ground

Kawartha Lakes - As the fall draws to a close, residents are asked to please rake and place leaves in dry paper bags. You can keep your bags dry by placing them in a storage shed, or under a tarp until your day of collection. Items placed in plastic bags will not be collected. Please do not rake or blow leaves into ditches. This creates blockage and can cause drainage issues, especially in the winter months.

Leaf and yard waste is to be placed at the curb by 7am on your assigned collection date (see below). Additional yard waste can be bundled with string or twine, at a size less than 3 feet in length and 40 pounds in weight. Grass clippings, sod, root balls, stumps and branches over 3 inches in diameter will not be accepted for curbside collection.
