City of Fredericton Announces Fall Leaf Collection Dates

The City of Fredericton’s annual residential fall leaf collection will be held over two weeks through October and November.
The dates are Oct. 28 to Nov. 1 and Nov. 11 to Nov. 15.
• To participate, residents must follow these general guidelines:
• Only compostable paper bags will be accepted.
• Collection is expected to coincide with regular garbage/recycling days.
• Pile compostable material separately from regular garbage.
• Leaves should not be raked into gutters.
• Loose leaves will not be collected.
• Small, tied bundles of brush will be collected.
• Leaves will not be collected for composting outside of the specified collection period.
• Limbs/branches are to be separated from other refuse so it they can be shredded. Branches should be no bigger than five centimetres in diameter x 1.5 m in length (2’’ x 5’) and loose brush must be tied in bundles.
• Once collected, compostable material is transported to the city’s Municipal Compost Facility, where they are formed into windrows, and composted into “Grade A” topsoil for use by the Parks & Trees Division and in other city capital construction projects.
