Fall Yard Waste Collection

Thursday September 22nd, 2016

Yard waste material should be placed at the curb in Paper Organic Yard Waste Bags, or open containers only (not over 44 pounds in weight), before 7 a.m. for collection.  Plastic Bags are not acceptable for yard waste and will not be picked up.  The Township encourages grass clippings to be left on your lawn providing valuable moisture and nutrients to your lawn. 

Residents should not include tree branches, which are greater than 4” in diameter. Use large branches for firewood. Use strong twine to bundle tree or shrub branches.  Bundles must not be more than 5 feet long, no more than 44 pounds in weight and not more than one foot in diameter.

Tree limbs will be picked up separate from the leaf collection.

Leaves can be mulched and left on your lawn (simply by running your lawn mower over them two or three times) – they can be added in thin layers to your composting bin, dug directly into the garden, or composted in a separate bin or pile.

Yard waste does not include sod, soil, lumber, tree stumps or stones and must be free of metal, food wastes and garbage. Staff from the Township of North Huron will not pick-up loose branches.

Fall yard waste collection starts Monday, October 3, 2016 and runs according to the following schedule:

 Monday, October 3, 2016
 Monday, October 17, 2016
 Monday, November 7, 2016
 Monday, November 14, 2016  Final

Any yard waste left at the curb after the Final pickup date will be subject to a minimum charge of $50.00 for pickup.
