Hamilton encompasses almost 40 square miles, with dozens of neighborhoods and countless trees, which requires some areas to have their gutter leaf collection either early or late in the season, and may only allow for one scheduled collection. However, untied Bagged Leaf Collection is available throughout the season.
To participate, residents must:
Place Leaves in either untied biodegradable paper bags or in open rigid containers with handles on the curbside of their property (to distinguish leaves from closed bagged household trash)
Containers must not weigh more than 50 pounds
Do not place leaves in cardboard boxes or cardboard containers (cardboard cannot be recycled as part of this collection)
Do not tie or close the top of containers (doing so may result in a missed collection)
