Bundles must be no larger than 30 cm in width and no longer than 2 metres. Individual branches cannot exceed 7 cm in diameter.</p><p>To ensure collection, leaf bags, rigid containers and bundles of brush must be visible, freed from the snow and fall within the County's weight limit of 20 kgs per container.  If yard waste is hit by snow-removal equipment, or are filled with snow prior to collection, it is the resident's responsibility to clean up the materials.
