Green waste

Curbside green waste collection in the City of Peterborough begins on Tuesday (April 7) and runs weekly until the last week of November.

You can put your leaf and yard waste out to the curb every week for collection on your regular garbage and recycling collection day.

Green waste must be in paper yard waste bags, bushel baskets, or in a garbage bin labelled with the City “Green Waste” stickers. Plastic bags will not be accepted.

There are no quantity limits for curbside green waste collection.

However, if your regular collection day is Friday, don’t put out any green waste, garbage, or recycling on Good Friday (April 10).

Due to the statutory holiday, collection will move to the following Monday (April 13).
