Residents are reminded to follow the town’s loose leaf collection guidelines described below.

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.
  • Ensure leaves are free of garbage or other yard waste materials such as brush, branches, large twigs or stones.
  • 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.

Contaminated piles of leaves or leaves that have been put out after the pickup dates will not be collected.

Homeowners are responsible for removing uncollected leaves.

Bagged leaf service

Halton Region collects bagged leaves and yard waste on the same day as regular garbage pickup. This is a separate program from the Town of Oakville's loose leaf collection.
