Residential Leaf Collection
November 8, 2012
Victoria residents have two options for leaf collection:
The 2012 City of Victoria Residential Leaf Pick-up Schedule enables you to look up your neighbourhood's deadline for placing leaves on the boulevard. Leaves can be placed in loose piles or in tied, clear, 100% compostable bags. Neighbourhood leaf collection begins in November and ends in January.
From October 22 to December 21, 2012, Victoria residents can contact the City's Parks Division at 250.361.0600 to arrange for their bagged leaves to be picked up from the boulevard within five working days at no additional charge. Bags must be tied, clear and 100% compostable.
There's no limit to the number of bags or leaf piles you can set out on the boulevard. Please keep leaf piles and bagged leaves off streets and sidewalks, and out of gutters and storm drains.
If you live in a single family home, duplex or townhouse, the 2012 City of Victoria Residential Leaf Pick-up Schedule was delivered by mail the first week of October. The Leaf Pick-up Schedule is also available at Victoria City Hall and at local venues. Or you can look up your neighbourhood's deadline for setting out leaves on the boulevard here.
We also encourage backyard composting of leaves wherever possible. For more information on backyard composting, visit the Greater Victoria Compost Education Centre.
Please Help Crews Keep Gutters and Storm Drains Clear of Leaves
Now that fall and rain have arrived, please help City crews keep gutters and storm drains clear of leaves to prevent clogging and flooding.
