Leaf and Yard Waste Collection Resumes

Temporary Leaf and Yard Collection Program

The City of Hamilton will start a temporary leaf and yard waste curbside collection program on Monday, April 20, 2020.

The City will collect leaf and yard waste bi-weekly, in alternating parts of the City. Beginning the week of April 20, with the communities of Ancaster, Dundas, Flamborough, Glanbrook and Stoney Creek. Beginning the week of April 27, yard waste will be collected from homes on the Hamilton mountain and across the lower city.

The bi-weekly rotation will continue until late June, or longer if required.

Residents should ensure their leaf and yard waste is at the curb by 7 a.m. on Monday morning during the week of their pick up. City crews will pick up the bags or containers by the weekend.

This program change will help the City to manage reduced staffing levels resulting from the COVID-19 emergency. Residents are asked to please be patient with crews as we work to ensure leaf and yard waste collection can continue.

The City is continuing to pursue options for more waste collections staff, includingtraining staff from other divisions.

Please note that there is no change to the collection of garbage, recycling, green cart or bulk pick up.
