Fall Leaf Pickup

Vacuum Leaf Pickup will happen on the following dates for Erindale Village;

October 29 – November 2nd
November 19 – 23

Please ensure the following for Vacuum Leaf Pickup:

  • Rake leaves to the edge of the grass by Sunday of the week before your scheduled vacuum leaf pickup. Do not rake leaves onto the road.
  • Do not mix items such as wood, brick or brush with the leaves as they can damage equipment or injure workers.
  • Help reduce potential flooding by keeping curbside storm drains clear of leaves.
  • Help City crews by removing cars from the street during leaf pickup.

Missed Leaf Pickup? Here are your options for disposing of leaves:

The Region of Peel will also pick up leaves on your regular waste collection day until
December 13, 2018. Leaves must be placed curbside in open, reusable containers such as bushel baskets, labelled rigid plastic containers or paper yard waste bags weighing less than 20 kgs (44 lbs) when full. Do not use plastic bags.

You can also compost your leaves or spread them around the base of your trees. Leaves will fertilize the soil and act as a buffer against extreme temperatures. Remember that oak leaves are difficult to compost.
