Leaf & Yard Waste

All brush, leaf and yard waste are to be taken out of bags and placed in the appropriate pile at the Oxford Mills Waste Transfer Station.  There is NO curbside collection of leaf and yard waste. The fee for disposing of leaf and yard waste at the Waste Transfer Station is $65/ton ($5 minimum, up to 80kg). No stumps or trees of more than 6” in diameter will be accepted. Grasscycling and leafmulching are alternatives to bringing your leaf and yard waste to the Waste Transfer Station. See instructions and tips below to learn more about these options.

What is Grasscycling?

Grasscycling is the recycling of grass by leaving clippings on the lawn after mowing. Grass clippings break down in a few days and return nutrients to the soil.

What is Leaf Mulching

Leaf mulching is the process of shredding leaves with a lawnmower and using them as mulch on your gardens and lawn.

Christmas Trees

Christmas trees with ALL decorations and tinsel removed can be disposed of for free by taking them to the Oxford Mills Waste Transfer Station in the month of January. There is NO curbsidepick-up of Christmas trees. After January, regular leaf & yard waste fees apply.
