While the town remains in Stage 3, some town recreation programs are temporarily paused in response to an increase of COVID-19 cases in Halton. Provincial orders remain in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines.

Loose leaves will be collected from designated areas in Oakville as follows:
Collection may occur any time during a scheduled week. To ensure your leaves are collected, put them out by 7 a.m. on the first day of collection in your zone.
To help keep leaves from blowing around your neighbourhood, please do not put out leaves more than seven days before the first day of a scheduled week for your zone.
Place all loose leaves on the boulevard or on the shoulder, not over catch basins, in bicycle lanes 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.
Contaminated piles of leaves or leaves put out after the pickup dates will not be collected. Homeowners are responsible for removing uncollected leaves.
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. Visit halton.ca for more information on your waste collection schedule.

Please note that the loose leaf program is being implemented in accordance with provincial guidelines and should guidelines change, this program may be affected. Residents are encouraged to take full advantage of earlier program collection times as well as Halton’s bagged yard waste collection service.
