Leaf and Yard Trimmings
COVID-19 Update – April 8, 2021
The Province has declared a third state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A province-wide stay at home order is in effect.
At this time, leaf & yard trimmings may be collected by separate vehicles . This allows collection crews to prioritize the collection of garbage first.
Please leave your approved leaf & yard trimmings bags or bundles at the roadside. A separate truck will be dispatched to collect them but it may take a few days to get to your address.
The City of Greater Sudbury collects leaf and yard trimmings from household residents on a roadside collection program year round.
If you are on a roadside pick-up route, place your leaf and yard trimmings out for collection on the same day as your garbage, recycling and green cart.
Leaf and yard trimmings include:
- garden trimmings
- house and garden plants
- hedge and tree trimming
- twigs and branches
- grass clippings
- brush and other plant materials
- natural Christmas trees
No sod, root balls, stumps from below ground level, gravel, soil or fruit.
