Guidelines on Saanich’s Leaf Collection Program webpage state public works only collects leaves. Piles need to be clear of catch basins, sidewalks, bike lanes, roadways, and must not be placed in ditches so collectors have unobstructed access. Tree needles, grass clippings, prunings, and garden waste are not accepted in this program.
Large loads of leaves can be taken to the Saanich Public Works Yard at 1040 McKenzie Ave. To check the collection schedule for a specific address, visit Saanich’s collection schedules webpage or download the GreenerGarbage app for smartphones.
