Curbside Leaf Collection

Beginning Monday, October 2 and running until Friday, December 1, the City of St. John’s will only collect leaves in paper yard waste bags. Leaves in plastic bags will not be collected and will be left at the curb. Just place the paper yard waste bags at the curb and they will be collected on the same day as your regular garbage day. Please do not cover your leaves. Place them separate from your garbage and recycling. Leaves in paper yard waste bags will be composted and used in future landscaping projects.

There is no limit to the number of paper yard waste bags that can be set out for collection at the curb, and these bags will not count towards the usual 10 bag limit of garbage per household.
