 HRM launches Leaf Clean-Up Program

Friday, Nov. 8, 2013 (Halifax, NS) – Halifax Regional Municipality will be commencing its annual Street Leaf Clean-Up Program on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013.

Leaf removal from municipal streets will be completed only once on a street-by-street basis in the heavily treed areas of the former City of Halifax, and as required in the other areas of the Urban Core Boundary of Halifax Regional Municipality.

All residents of HRM are reminded that:

  • In accordance with HRM’s Streets By-Law No. 300, Section 43, residents shall not sweep or deposit leaves in the gutter or roadway.  The potential for street flooding is greatly increased when catch basins are clogged with leaves.
  • Leaves from residential properties are collected on regular green cart collection week.
  • Each household can place a maximum of 20 clear, orange plastic or large paper bags filled with leaves on the curb on their collection days.

Citizen co-operation is essential to the efficient completion of the Street Leaf Clean-Up Program.

Contact HRM’s Call Centre if you have any questions at 3-1-1.
