Yard Waste

The Region of Waterloo provides an extensive yard waste collection program - serving Kitchener residents.

Yard waste - which includes things like plants, grass, leaves, weeds, branches and other compostable items - is collected every other week, from April through November, on your regular garbage and recycling collection day.

In the fall - generally October and November - the City of Kitchener also offers its
leaf collection program which provides several options for residents to dispose of the loose leaves on their property.
