Another sign that winter is on the way, there are just a few more weeks to have your yard waste picked up at your curb.

Bi -weekly fall yard waste pickup ends November 30th. That’s the last day for the curbside yard waste pickup program until collection resumes again March 1st, 2012.

Simply place your yard waste directly into the cart with the green lid and wheel it out for pickup every other week (alternate weeks to your recycling pick up).To determine your yard waste collection week, please refer to your Living Greener Calendar, or visit regionaldistrict.com/recycle.

Waste Reduction Facilitator Rae Stewart says residents make great use of the bi- weekly collection.  “So far this year alone we’ve collected approximately 10,000 tonnes of yard waste at the curb. “

Stewart adds, “Collecting yard waste separately not only gives us the chance to compost all this yard waste, it also saves valuable landfill space,  reduces unnecessary landfill traffic congestion, and offers residents a great soil conditioner in the form of GlenGrow  they can buy for their own gardens come springtime.”
