2019 Fall Leaf Pickup Program

The City of Mississauga will begin its 2019 Vacuum Leaf Pickup in many neighbourhoods this month. Vacuum Leaf Pickup is provided to streets that are more than 35 years old and have many large mature trees. Streets with fewer and younger trees are not part of the program.

Addresses that are eligible for the program will also receive direct-mail notice that indicates leaf pickup dates in their area. Residents can also view the Leaf Pickup Route Map online to view leaf pickup dates or to see if their street is eligible.

To prepare for leaf pickup:

  • Rake leaves to the edge of the boulevard or into your ditch by Sunday before your scheduled leaf pickup. Do not rake leaves onto the road.
  • Do not mix items such as wood, brick or brush with the leaves as that can damage equipment or injure workers.
  • Reduce the risk of flooding by keeping the curbside storm drains clear of leaves.
  • Help City crews by removing cars from the street during leaf pickup.

What if more leaves fall after the scheduled leaf collection?

Please put the leaves in paper yard waste bags, bushel baskets or reusable containers without lids and place them curbside for pickup by the Region of Peel on your regular waste collection day. Yard waste will be collected until December 12, 2019. For more information about yard waste collection, visit peelregion.ca/waste.
