WINNIPEG – The City's Curbside yard waste collection is coming to an end for 2018.

Officials say you can find out if your yard waste collection is “area A” or “area B” by clicking here, winnipeg.ca/collectionday
Yard waste is collected at the curb once every two weeks, on the same collection day as recycling and garbage. You can put their yard waste in:
- Any reusable container without a lid (e.g., plastic tubs, old blue boxes, old metal or plastic garbage containers). Containers should not be broken or damaged.
- Cardboard boxes
- Paper yard waste bags
- Plastic bags are not accepted in the program because they do not break down and will ruin the finished compost.
The City does require you place yard waste containers to the side of your recycling and garbage carts, and to leave an arm’s length between their yard waste containers and their recycling and garbage carts.
Yard waste includes unlimited amounts of outside organic materials, such as grass clippings, leaves, plants, flowers, bush/shrub clippings, and small tied bundles of branches no longer than one metre or heavier than 22 kilograms. Some of the materials not accepted in the curbside yard waste collection program include logs, stumps, rocks, dirt, sod, and litter. These items slow down the composting process and can damage the composting equipment.
You can also take your yard waste to the 4R Winnipeg Depots located at 1777 Brady Road, 1120 Pacific Avenue, and 429 Panet Road.
