Paper Leaf & Yard Waste Bags for Spring Leaf Collection
Residents are required to use paper leaf bags instead of plastic for curbside collection. The switch to paper will reduce plastic contamination in the organics stream.
Leaves may still be placed in the green cart for collection. Paper bags are available at hardware, department and grocery stores.
Questions? Call (902) 543-2991.
