Yard Waste Collection

Nov. 22: Curbside leaf and yard waste collection delays are continuing across Niagara. Some Thursday and Friday areas from last week remain uncollected. Collection staff are working through these areas this week and as such leaf and yard waste collection delays will continue this week and into next week.

There is no limit on the amount of yard waste bags you can put out for collection each week.
