2017 Vacuum Leaf Pickup Extended

I have been advised that due to the favourable weather forecast over the next week the Vacuum Leaf Collection Program (VLCP) for Ward 3 will be extended into next week.

If you qualify for the Vacuum Leaf Collection Program, please ensure you:
  • Rake leaves to the edge of the grass by Sunday night.  Do not rake leaves onto the road.
  • Do not mix items such as wood, brick or brush with the leaves as they can damage equipment or injure workers.
  • Help reduce potential flooding by keeping curbside storm drains clear of leaves.
  • Help our crews by removing cars from the street during leaf pickup.
If your address is eligible for Leaf Pickup you would have received a direct-mail notice a few weeks ago indicating dates that leaves in your area would have  been picked up. Check the Leaf Pickup Route Map to find out if your street is eligible to receive Vacuum Leaf Pickup.
Staff will continue to assess the volumes being collected, the weather forecast and the budget to see if the program will be extended any longer than noted above.
Please note that most of the City vehicles have changed over from leaf collection into winter maintenance but staff will keep a few of the crews set up to continue with this program.

Other option for disposing leaves:
The Region of Peel will also pick up leaves on your regular waste collection day until December 14, 2017. Leaves must be placed curbside in open, reusable containers such as bushel baskets, labelled rigid plastic containers or paper yard waste bags weighing less than 20 kgs (44 lbs) when full.   Do not use plastic bags.
