Scheduled City Pickup

Most municipalities will come and pick up outdoor waste, or they’ll have designated places for drop off. Check with your local municipality for the scheduled city pickup dates and the appropriate bylaws to avoid fines. In Ottawa, for instance, yard waste must be placed in compostable paper yard waste bags and be no heavier than 33 lb. There are also regulations regarding the size of the branches and how they must be tied. Any material or tree cuttings over 10cm in diameter, rocks, sod, logs or stumps cannot be placed in the regular garbage and will need to be disposed of in another manner.

Drop it off at the Dump

If you have a truck, you could also haul your debris to your local dump. However, it’s important to call and check around as not all locations allow leaf and yard waste to be dropped off. And, if you do leave it there, it could be considered illegal dumping which can land you with a hefty fine. Some may also require a fee per load or weight.
