Extra Yard Trimmings

Seasonal Unlimited Yard Trimmings Collection​

Monday, Oct. 29 - Friday, Nov. ​23, 201​8

As fall yard clean up gets underway, the City is offering additional, unlimited curbside collection for extra yard waste and leaves for single-family homes that pay garbage fees to the City of Coquitlam.

Set-out options:

  • Place yard trimmings – like leaves, prunings and small branches – in kraft paper bags. (These can be placed curbside prior to collection day.)
  • Bundle branches must be less than 7.5 cm (3 in.) in diameter and no more than 1 m (3 ft.) in length.
  • Use old garbage cans with a Green Can sticker.(Keep food scraps in regular Green Cart.)

Bundles and containers must not block sidewalks, laneways or streets and can weigh no more than 20 kg (44 lbs) each. Sod, rocks, soil and plastic bags are not accepted. 

Note: ​A separate truck collects the extra yard trimmings and may arrive later than your regular Green Cart collection. City-issued carts are not to be placed curbside prior to collection day even if they only contain yard trimmings.

Additional yard trimmings will be collected on your regular collection day.
