If you were looking for a sure sign that the warm weather is on its way out, the City of Winnipeg is set to end its curbside yard waste collection for the winter.

Depending on where you live in the city, yard waste pickup is going to end either the week of Oct. 30-Nov. 3 (area A) or Nov. 6-10 (area B). To find out which region you’re in, visit the city’s collection day website or call 311.

Yard waste can be left in any reusable container, like an old blue box or metal or plastic garbage can, as well as in cardboard boxes or paper yard bags. Containers should be placed to the side of your garbage and recycling carts, at least an arm’s length away.
