DELHI, ON – NOVEMBER 18, 2016 – Norfolk County Council agreed to extend the curbside collection of leaf and yard waste for one additional week this month.

The urban collection will now continue, on your regular collection day, until the last week of November. The current collection was scheduled to finish the week of November 25 but Council agreed to extend the collection for the week starting November 28.

Leaf and yard waste is collected at the curbside in eleven designate areas. Leaf and yard waste must be set out in kraft yard waste paper bags or bundled according to specifications at the public street. Collection occurs on the same day as regular garbage and blue box recycling. Leaves are not to be raked to the curb.

Lee Robinson, General Manager of Public Works and Environmental Services for the County said “that due to the mild weather many trees are still holding on to their leaves. This one time extension gives the trees more time to drop their leaves and gives residents one more week to rake up.” This extension will mean one extra collection added to the end of the six weeks previously advertised for the Program. The same rules and regulations apply.
