The program is intended to collect leaves from street trees, not all trees on private property. Program changes (due to weather interruptions) and schedules are located at: City of Waterloo Leaf Collection information.
Below is the estimated collection schedule for 2022.
Zones with fewer trees will be collected first, followed by more heavily forested areas.
Ward 4 includes Areas E1, E6 and E8.
- Week 1 – October 31 to November 5, zones W6, W8, E8, E7 and E5
- Week 2 – November 7 to November 12, zones W7, W1, E6 and E4
- Week 3 – November 14 to November 19, zones W3, W4, E3 and E2
- Week 4 – November 21 to November 26, zones W2, W5 and E1
If you miss it, the leaves fall late, and/or they are too wet and heavy for the collection equipment they need to be bagged or mulched into the lawn as recommended by Scott’s Lawncare: https://www.scotts.com/en-ca/library/lawn-basics/dont-rake-those-leaves-mulch-them-your-lawn
