Spring loose leaf collection starting April 18

The Town of Oakville’s annual spring loose leaf collection will run from Tuesday, April 18 to Friday, April 28, 2017 in designated neighbourhoods. Information on collection zones and dates can be found on our spring loose leaf collection page or by calling ServiceOakville at 905-845-6601.

Residents are reminded to follow the town’s loose leaf collection guidelines and keep leaf piles separate from any woody debris including large twigs, brush and branches.

Loose Leaf Collection Guidelines

  • Place all loose leaves on the boulevard or on the shoulder, not over catch basins or in the ditches in front of your house.
  • Make sure leaves are free of garbage or other yard waste materials.
  • Put leaves out no earlier than seven days before the first day of your pickup and no later than 7 a.m. on the first day of collection in your zone.
  • Remove contaminated piles of leaves or leaves that have been put out after the collection dates.

Bagged leaf and yard waste collection service is provided to all Oakville residents by Halton Region on regular garbage collection days from April 11 to December 5, 2017. This is a separate program from the Town of Oakville’s loose leaf collection service. Call 311 or visit halton.ca/waste for more information on curbside collection schedules.
