After numerous delays due to cool temperatures and lingering snow, the City of Winnipeg is ready to collect yard waste from homeowners.
Starting on Monday, April 29, curbside yard waste collection will be picked up every two weeks on the same collection day as recycling and garbage.
Residents can use reusable containers, cardboard boxes and paper yard waste bags for their items. Plastic bags will not be accepted.
The city asks that you place your yard waste containers to the side of your recycling and garbage carts, and to leave an arm’s length between the yard waste containers and other carts.
More than 6,000 tonnes of yard waste was collected from the new curbside yard waste collection program and composted at the Brady Resource Management Facility.
