2019 Collection Schedule
Please note that organics collection is every other week during the winter months
Collection starts at 7:00 am so your carts and blue bags must in place by then. If you are late, your carts may not be emptied that week.

Simply leave the grass clippings on your lawn as you mow. As they decompose, they will provide water and nutrients to your lawn.
Mow frequently, about every 4 to 5 days during spring/summer. When growth is slower (late summer and fall), cutting once per week or less will suffice.
Mow high. Only cut off the top 1/3 of the grass. No more than 1/3 of the grass height should be cut at any one time.
Mow only when grass is dry. If grass is too long after prolonged wet weather, start with a higher cut and gradually lower it during successive cuttings.
Clumping may result from cutting wet grass or making too long a cut. Mowing the area again from a different direction will help dissipate the clump.
Use any mower to grasscycle. You just need to 'Go Bagless' by removing your grass bag.
Keep the blade sharp.
Keep your lawn mower blade at a medium to high height setting to avoid over cutting the grass.
If you prefer to bag your grass clippings, brown bags are accepted at the Recycling Depot.
Grasscycling is part of maintaining a healthy lawn.
Rake the lawn during spring yard cleanup to remove dead grass.
Aerate the lawn periodically to allow nutrients, air and water to reach the grass roots.
Adequately water the lawn. Single deep waterings (25 mm once every 7 - 10 days) are more effective and less wasteful than many light waterings.
