Spring Yard Cleanup

The City of Fredericton’s annual Spring Yard Cleanup program will be held in May 2020. Please return to this page in April for the announced collection dates. 

Below is the table showing the annual tonnages of material collected and delivered to the City’s municipal compost facility:

To participate, residents must follow these general guidelines:

  • ONLY compostable paper bags will be accepted.
  • Collection coincides with regular garbage/recycling days.
  • Pile compostable material separately from regular garbage.
  • Leaves should not be raked into gutters.
  • Loose leaves will not be collected.
  • Small, tied bundles of brush will be collected. 
  • Leaves will not be collected for composting outside of the specified collection period.
  • Limbs/branches are to be separated from other refuse so they can be shredded. Branches should be no bigger than 5 cm in diameter x 1.5 m in length (2’’ x 5’), and loose brush must be tied in bundles.

Materials not meeting the guidelines can be taken directly to the Fredericton Region Landfill at 1775 Alison Blvd. The landfill is open Monday - Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
