Unlimited Yard Trimmings Collection in Coquitlam

Coquitlam Yard Waste Cleanup 2014

October is winding to a close, and many Tri-Cities residents are getting their yards and gardens ready for winter. Pruning and weeding means yard waste, though. Lots and lots of yard waste. On top of that the leaves are falling from trees into lovely piles, which means even more yard waste. If you’re a Coquitlam resident who has been wondering what to do with extra leaves and yard debris from the fall weather, we have good news. The City of Coquitlam’s Seasonal Unlimited Yard Trimmings Collection in November will help.

Throughout the month, residents receiving solid waste collection from the City can put out any extra yard trimmings for pick up. In addition to your Green Cart, place any extra yard trimmings at your curbside by 7:30am on your collection day. You can use kraft bags, your old Green Can garbage cans, or bundle tree prunings that are less than three inches in diameter and no more than three feet in length.

They really are sticklers about those tree prunings, in our experience.

Be smart about your green waste, though, and keep any food scraps in the Green Cart. The extra service is just for yard trimmings, not for the leftovers from last night’s dinner. Don’t lure all those bears that are fattening up for winter right now to your neighbourhood in search of moldy cheese.

Coquitlam’s Seasonal Unlimited Yard Trimmings program runs twice a year – once in the spring and once in the fall. So if you love to prune, you won’t have to wait until next year to pull out those clippers again.
