During the fall, the City of Mississauga provides Vacuum Leaf Pickup service to streets that are more than 35 years old and contain many mature large trees. Streets with fewer and younger trees are not included in the program.
Addresses eligible for Leaf Pickup will receive a direct-mail notice that indicates when leaves
will be picked up in their area. Check the Leaf Pickup Route Map to view dates and find out if your street will receive Vacuum Leaf Pickup.
If your address qualifies for Vacuum Leaf Pickup:
Rake leaves to the edge of the grass by Sunday of the week before your scheduled vacuum leaf pickup. Do not rake leaves onto the road.
Do not mix items such as wood, brick or brush with the leaves as they can damage equipment or injure workers.
Help reduce potential flooding by keeping curbside storm drains clear of leaves.
Help our crews by removing cars from the street during leaf pickup.
What if more leaves fall after the scheduled leaf collection?
Here are your options for disposing leaves:
The Region of Peel will also pick up leaves on your regular waste collection day until December 12, 2019. Leaves must be placed curbside in open, reusable containers such as bushel baskets, labelled rigid plastic containers or paper yard waste bags weighing less than
20 kgs (44 lbs) when full. Do not use plastic bags.
You can also compost your leaves or spread them around the base of your trees. Leaves will fertilize the soil and act as a buffer against extreme temperatures. Remember that oak leaves
are difficult to compost.
