Leaf and Yard Waste
The City of Sault Ste. Marie provides bi-weekly collection of leaf and yard waste, which is processed into compost. There is no bag limit for leaf and yard waste.
Leaf and yard waste consists of leaves, grass clippings, and garden waste. These are the only items which will be accepted for collection. All animal waste and branches must be removed. Only biodegradable paper bags will be accepted.
All leaf and yard waste must be placed curbside before 7:30 a.m. on collection day.
To identify collection day, locate your address by using the Collection Calendar
In 2017 there will be no leaf and yard waste collection for the months of July, August, and September. Collection will run from April 18 to June 30, 2017 and resume October 2 to November 24, 2017.
Rural residents outside the Fourth Line and Allen's Side Road boundaries may call 705-759-5201 to arrange for individual collection of leaf and yard waste.
