Changes to Green Cart Collection This Fall: What You Need to Know


Starting in November, green cart collection will be once every other week, resuming weekly in the spring. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Fill Your Green Cart First: Leaves, branches, grass, and plants can go directly inside the green cart. If it’s full, use paper yard waste bags for extra waste.
  • Extra Yard Waste Bags: Place them at least 0.5 meters (2 feet) away from your cart. Roll the tops closed to prevent spills, and make sure you can lift the bag with one hand.
  • No Plastic Bags: They are not allowed in your green cart.
