Spring Yard Cleanup

Are you looking for something to do while you’re at home with the family this Easter weekend? The City's annual "Spring Yard Cleanup" program happens during the weeks of April 27 to May 1 and May 11 to May 15.

The program offers residents environmentally responsible disposal of garden and yard waste, limbs and branches. Materials collected will go the City’s municipal compost facility.

Only put yard waste out during collection weeks. For more details on eligible pickup items & packing, visit

Parks & Trails

Please remember that while our parks and green spaces remain open for exercise, playgrounds, skateboard parks, dog parks, basketball courts, tennis courts, and all sport fields are closed.

After clarifying with the Province, City parks and green spaces remain open. However, everyone must maintain physical distancing of at least two metres. No group gatherings in public parks are permitted. While using the trail bridge, be sure to keep to the right.

Parks and trails will remain open provided the public adheres to physical distancing and avoid gatherings.

In addition, when out for a walk, residents are always reminded to keep your dogs on a leash, observe physical distancing to other walkers, and to pick up after your dog.

Don’t Flush That

While we understand you are taking heightened sanitary measures during the COVID-19 pandemic, please be mindful that when you’re at home, put your garbage in the garbage, not the toilet. Anything other than pee, poop and toilet paper clogs the pipes in your home, as well as the City pipes, treatment plants, lagoons & sewage lift stations.
