October to January – Unlimited Leaf Collection for Vancouver residents.
From the City of Vancouver Collection Calendar May 2013 – February 2014:
Collect the leaves that fall onto your property, boulevard and sidewalk. Do not rake or blow leaves on to the street.
Fill your green bin with leaves and set it out on your scheduled Green Bin collection day. No plastic bags allowed.
Use a commercially purchased waste receptacle (maximum size: 100 litres) or paper leaf bag for any extra leaves. Maximum weight for a filled receptacle or bag is 20 kg.
Higher Ground Gardens also offers leaf removal and collection as part of our Fall Garden Clean Up service. You can choose to have us take the leaves to the waste transfer station, or they can be put in your Green Bin for collection by the City (if there’s room!).
