Seasonal Yard Waste Clean Up

QMP Fall Yard Waste dates have been scheduled!
Yard waste includes leaves, twigs, branches, fallen fruit, dead plants, grass and other plant material from your yard or garden.

Set out your extra yard waste on:
Monday, October 16th
Monday, November 13th

Setting out your yard waste:

  • Set out yard waste by 7am on your seasonal yard waste collection days.
  • Use see-through plastic or double-ply paper bags. Plastic bags that are not see-through, like black garbage bags, will not be collected.
  • Bundle twigs and branches. Please tie materials over 0.3 metre (1 ft) in bundles and set them beside your yard waste bags. Bundles must be less than 1.2 metres (4 ft) and 0.75 metre (2.5 ft) in diameter.
  • There is no bag limit. You can set out as many bags or bundles as you need.
  • Keep your collector safe. All yard waste is picked up by hand. Please make sure your bags are in good condition, less than 20 kg (44 lb), and packaged in a way that’s safe and easy for your collector to lift. Make sure your paper bags are rolled closed at the top and your see-through plastic bags are tied closed. This prevents spills.
  • Yard waste in carts will only be collected on your regular collection day.
  • Note: Tree stumps and trunks are not accepted for curbside collection but can be dropped off at an Eco Station for free.

Fire Prevention Week

How fire-safe is your home? EFRS is challenging Edmontonians to take part in the inaugural Home Fire Safety Assessment challenge to find out how fire-safe their homes are! This initiative will recognize the wider city ward with
the most participation, so be sure to work together with your neighbouring communities.

Between October 8 and October 31, all Edmontonians can make their homes safer by testing their home fire safety knowledge and practices through an online home assessment. The questionnaire will take about 10 minutes to complete, and those who complete the assessment will have the chance to be entered into a draw for unique prizes.

Complete Edmonton Fire’s online Home Fire Safety Assessment and help make your home and our community as fire-safe as possible.
