Last yard waste pickup Nov. 30

Bi-weekly fall yard waste pickup ends Nov. 30, the last day for the curbside yard waste pickup program until collection resumes again March 1, 2012.

Regional waste reduction facilitator Rae Stewart says residents have made great use of the bi-weekly collection.

“So far this year alone we’ve collected approximately 10,000 tonnes of yard waste at the curb,” Stewart said. “Collecting yard waste separately not only gives us the chance to compost all this yard waste, it also saves valuable landfill space, reduces unnecessary landfill traffic congestion, and offers residents a great soil conditioner in the form of GlenGrow they can buy for their own gardens come springtime.”
