Fall loose leaf collection begins later this month in Oakville
Published October 6, 2023 at 10:41 am
Fall has arrived and soon Oakville residents will face the task of raking up all those leaves covering the yard.
As for what to do with all those leaves you gathered up, the Town of Oakville has you covered.
The fall loose leaf collection schedule is out.
Every fall the town collects loose leaves from residents’ ditches and boulevards on designated days between October and December.
If the fall collection schedule is interrupted due to the early onset of winter weather, then a spring loose leaf collection service will be offered on an as-required basis.
Loose leaves will be collected from designated areas in Oakville as follows:
Oct. 23-27- Zone 1, 2, 3, and 7
Oct. 30-Nov. 3 – Zone 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8
Nov. 6-10 – Zone 1, 2, 3, and 7
Nov. 13-17 – Zone 4, 5, 6, 8, and A
Nov. 20- 24 – Zone 1, 2, 3, 7, B, and C
Nov. 27-Dec. 1 – 4, 5, 6, and 8
Schedules are subject to change due to weather conditions.
- Collection may occur any time during a scheduled week. To ensure your leaves are collected, put them out by 7 a.m. on the first day of collection in your zone.
- To help keep leaves from blowing around your neighbourhood, please do not put out leaves more than seven days before the first day of a scheduled week for your zone.
- Place all loose leaves on the boulevard or on the shoulder, not over catch basins, in bicycle lanes or in the ditches in front of your house.
- Ensure leaves are free of garbage or other yard waste materials such as brush, branches, large twigs, or stones.
- Contaminated piles of leaves or leaves put out after the pickup dates will not be collected. Homeowners are responsible for removing uncollected leaves.
Bagged leaf service
