Residential Fall Curbside Leaf Collection

2017 Curbside Leaf Collection

Curbside leaf collection takes place for Brockville residents on their regular collection day during the weeks of October 23rd to the 27th,  and then again November 13th to the 17th . Leaves must be placed out at the curb, separate from garbage, by 7:00am on their collection day. Residents must use paper bags or reusable containers only for leaf collection, as plastic bags are not accepted; leaves in plastic bags of any kind will not be collected. 

Leaves and yard waste can be brought to the City’s Compost Site at 251 North Augusta Rd. The site is open April to November. Leaves and soft-stemmed plants are free to drop-off. Please use reusable containers, paper bags, or de-bag your plastic bags on site. NO weeds or grass clippings please. A small fee applies for brush (starting at $3 per car load; $6 for truck, van,  SUV, or trailer <10 ft.; $8 for a car & trailer; $11 for a truck & trailer; and $20 for a trailer >10ft in length or tandem wheels). Don’t forget, you can take home two free wheelbarrows full (approximately 2-3 garbage bags) of compost for FREE per resident per year. Larger quantities of compost are also available for sale (contact 613-342-8772 ext. 3220 for more details). The available compost meets Category AA standards and is suitable for use on all gardens.
