Leaf pick up will be later this year for neighbourhoods south of the QEW, as a result of last year’s experience when pickups occurred before the majority of leaves had fallen, leaving many residents to bag and pay to dispose of their leaves.
Formal calendars will be distributed in early September (see Leaf Collection Brochure). The plan is to divide the city into four areas, North East and North West of the QEW, South East, and South West, with Ward 2 falling into South West, Area 3. The proposed areas and scheduled pickups are as follows:
Area 1: North of the QEW to Hwy 5, west of Walker’s Line; Pickups: Nov. 6 & Nov. 27
Area 2: South of the QEW, East of Guelph Line; Pickups: Nov. 13 & Dec. 4
Area 3: South of the QEW, West of Guelph Line; Pickups: Nov. 20 & Dec. 11
Area 4: North of QEW to Hwy 5, east of Walker’s Line: Nov. 27 (one pick-up)
