Sure Sign Of Spring: Green Waste Collection Begins April 3rd

Here is another great sign that Spring has arrived: The City of Peterborough's Green Waste collection starts up for the season on Tuesday, April 3rd. Leaf and yard waste may be placed at the curb every week for collection on your regular collection day.

Green waste must be in paper yard waste bags, bushel baskets or a garbage bin labeled with the City of Peterborough “Green Waste” stickers. These stickers are free and are available at City Hall, GreenUP and local Home Hardware stores (Merritt on Lansdowne & Kingan on Simcoe). Note that plastic bags will not be accepted.


There are no quantity limits on green waste. So go wild.

Weekly green waste collection will continue through until the last week of November. For more details, contact the City Waste Management Division at 705-742-7777, ext. 1657.
