General Yard Waste Collection Tips

  • Place your yard waste and pumpkins in labelled, open, rigid, reusable containers, bushel baskets or paper yard waste bags weighing no more than 20 kg (44 lbs.). Call 905-791-9499 or Caledon residents in long-distance areas can call 905-584-2216 to request yard waste stickers to label your containers.

  • Place your recyclable materials (blue box, green bin and yard waste) on one side of the driveway and garbage on the opposite side, if possible.

  • Securely tie brush in bundles up to 1.2 m (4 ft.) in length and 76 cm (30 in.) in width, weighing no more than 20 kg (44 lbs.).

  • Brush and tree trimmings must be 10 cm (4 in.) or less in diameter.

DO NOT USE PLASTIC BAGS OR RECYCLING BOXES

Paper yard waste bags are available at most department, hardware and grocery stores in the Region

Ways to reduce your yard waste:

  • Grasscycle by mulching your grass clippings and leave them on the lawn to return nutrients to the soil.

  • Do not over-water your lawn. A healthy lawn only requires 2.5 cm (1 in.) of water per week.

  • Build or purchase a backyard composter to turn your yard waste into an excellent soil enhancer.

Fall Leaf Vacuum Program

The Fall Leaf Vacuum Program is performed in partnership with the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga. To find out if you qualify for the program, please visit:
