How do I dispose of my Leaf and Yard Waste/Christmas tree?

​​​​The County of Simcoe offers curbside collection of leaf and yard waste​ in the Spring (beginning in April, for 4 weeks/zone), in the month of July, (2 weeks/zone) and again in the fall (beginning in October, for 5 weeks/zone).​

More specific information regarding leaf and yard waste curbside set out requirements can be found HERE​.

Please see your paper copy or the online version of our 2024 Waste Management Calendar​ for your zone's collection weeks.  Outside of the collection weeks mentioned above, leaf and yard waste can be taken to the Waste Management Facilities free of charge, however please note that the brush disposal rate is $75/metric tonne.
