Fall Branch Collection Nov. 1 - 26, 2021

Fall branch collection starts next week on Nov. 1 and continues until Nov. 26. Curbside branch collection is available across Niagara Region to all residents living in single family homes and apartments with six units or less.

When setting out branches for collection, it is important to remember:

  • Branches must be tied in bundles using string or twine
  • Maximum weight of a bundle = 22.7 kg (50 lbs.)
  • Maximum size of a bundle = 1.5 m (5 ft.) in length and 0.5 m (1.6 ft.) in diameter
  • Individual branches inside of a bundle must not exceed 7 cm (2.8 in.) in diameter
  • Branches must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on your regular collection day, or placed out the night before after 5 p.m.
  • Stumps, large branches / limbs and tree trunks are not collected at the curb
  • During the weeks of fall branch collection, branches and leaf and yard material are often collected in a separate collection truck than Green Bin material

In addition to curbside collection, residents can also drop off branches (of any size) and yard waste at one of the Region’s Waste and Recycling Drop-off Depots year-round, free of charge.

Special collection weeks, such as branch collection, holiday collection and Christmas tree collection are included in the web/mobile app. View your address specific calendar or download the ‘Niagara Region Waste’ mobile app from the Apple or Google Play stores.
