Sure Sign Of Spring (And Lawn Work): Green Waste Collection Starts April 2nd

The City of Peterborough green waste collection begins on Tuesday, April 2nd. Leaf and yard waste may go out to the curb every week for collection on your regular collection day.

There are no quantity limits for curbside green waste collection. Green waste must be in paper yard waste bags, bushel baskets or a garbage bin labeled with the City “Green Waste” stickers. These stickers are free and available at City Hall, GreenUP and local Home Hardware stores (Merritt on Lansdowne Street and Kingan on Simcoe Street).
