[ppm:alt id=1767]

Yard Waste is collected with recycling every second week from April to November*, as noted in the Town of Aurora's Recycling and Waste Collection Calendar. There is no limit on the amount of yard waste that can be placed for collection, providing that acceptable containers are used.

Acceptable Containers:
Please place weeds, plant trimmings and leaves in paper yard bags, or any ridgid open top container that has handles. Please bundle branches as follows:

  • Individual branches must be no larger than 10 cm (4") in diameter;
  • Bundles must be no more than of 22 kg (50 lbs) and no longer than 1 m (3 ft).

The maximum weight for individual paper yard bags or containers is 22 kg or 50 lbs.

The following items should not be placed with Yard Waste: Kitchen scraps, fruits and vegetables, grass clippings, rocks, dirt, sod, tree stumps, larger branches, flower pots/trays, painted or treated wood and animal droppings.

Please note: The Town of Aurora will not pick up leaves that have been raked or piled along roads. Non-containerized or non-bagged leaves present a traffic, drainage, and safety hazard. In addition, leaves can block culverts and roadside catch basins, and may cause flooding. Please help to keep these areas free of excess leaves.
