Effective April 1, 2019 Leaf and yard waste, including grass clippings will not be accepted in green bins. The Central Composting Facility voluntarily closed in June 2018 to address odour concerns. To assist in re-starting the facility, the City is asking residents to stop using their green bin for leaf and yard waste including grass clippings.

Green bins should only be used for food scraps and soiled paper products like napkins and pizza boxes. Learn more about what goes in the green bin.
