Leaves Must be in Paper Yard Waste Bags

Leaves placed at the curb for pick up must be in paper yard waste bags. Until Friday, Dec. 1 leaves in paper yard waste bags will be collected on the same day as garbage pick-up in each area and do not count toward the 10 garbage bag limit.  

Leaves in plastic bags will not be collected and will be left at the curbside.

RONA stores in the St. John’s metro area are supporting this initiative by offering a ‘Buy One, Get One’ coupon for paper yard waste bags. Coupons are available online and in select Saturday issues of The Telegram.

Leaves can also be dropped off at the Residential Drop Off at Robin Hood Bay, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays to Saturdays.
