Organic waste is a crucial waste stream to target as we aim to increase waste diversion from the landfill! It is therefore an important aspect of the Town’s ongoing improvements to its waste management system.

In 2023, the Town offered four (4) yard waste collections that were greatly appreciated by residents. In 2024, the Town has decided to offer a total of twelve (12) yard waste collections as a pilot project to determine if there is an increased level of participation. This pilot project addresses citizen requests for additional yard waste collections in the summer for grass clippings, as well as other yard waste produced while cleaning gardens, yards and lawns. Awaiting, and in between these collections, the Town strongly recommends that residents attempt to divert yard waste by green practices such as home composting, grasscycling and leafcycling. More information about these practices can be found here.
