The County of Simcoe’s curbside leaf and yard waste collection program will start on April 10 in Zone One and will run until the end of the week of May 29.

These bi-weekly collections include leaves, grass, branches (sized and bundled appropriately), and other appropriately prepared garden waste.

Residents are reminded to use kraft paper yard waste bags, compostable bags, cardboard boxes, or open-ended rigid containers when placing leaf and yard waste at their regular collection point.

Materials for collection should be placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. on Monday of the collection week for each area.

The collection will occur during the week, not necessarily on a resident’s regular collection day.

To determine your collection zone, refer to the 2023 Waste Management Calendar. The schedule is available on the Simcoe County Collects App, free to download from the APP Store or Google Play.

Spring 2023 leaf and yard waste will be collected throughout the week in each Zone as follows:

Zone One: April 10, April 24, May 8 and May 22.

Zone two: April 17, May 1, May 15 and May 29.

Leaf and yard waste collection will also occur in July and October.
