Curbside Leaf Collection by Appointment

Thank you to City residents who participated in the 2015 leaf mulching and curbside collection program. The City is once again encouraging environmentally-friendly uses for fallen leaves. Your options include:

1) Mulch them with a mower
This is the most convenient and environmentally sound way to use leaves. Keep the mulch on the lawn, or use it in gardens, flower beds or around trees.

2) Curbside collection by appointment – October 24 to December 2
If you cannot mulch, place leaves in paper yard waste bags. There is no limit to the number of paper bags you can place at the curb. Paper bags are collected in separate trucks, composted and used for landscaping projects at Robin Hood Bay. Collection takes place by appointment only.
– Book your appointment at least one week in advance, to be picked up on your garbage day:
– Online –
– St. John’s Waste and Recycling App
– By calling 311 or 754-CITY

Note that leaves in plastic bags cannot be composted and will not be collected through this program.

3) In a backyard compost bin
If you compost, fallen leaves are a great ‘brown’ layer once they are dry.

4) Drop off
Bring leaves to the Robin Hood Bay Residential Drop Off, 340 East White Hills Road, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (except Sundays and Mondays)
– Leaves must be in paper yard waste bags to be accepted for composting.
– Leaves received in plastic bags cannot be used for composting and will be treated as garbage.

A ‘Buy One, Get One’ coupon for paper yard waste bags redeemable at RONA is available at (Quick Links > Garbage and Recycling), or at RONA stores.
