Those falling leaves – which the city will pick up from your curb. Here’s when and where.

By Pepper Parr

BURLINGTON, ON  October 16, 2012  You know that the Saturday afternoon you go out to rake them up – more of them are going to fall onto your front lawn or your back yard.  And even though you raked up all the leaves from the trees on your property – the wind will blow leaves from the tress form your neighbours trees.  Such is life in the suburbs where we get to enjoy the fall colours and then we get to exercise our upper bodies raking them up.

Fortunately the city will take them all away – here is the schedule they will follow.

The city has created a bunch of zones.  Check the map below, note the dates and follow the rules as to how you put the leaves out – and it will work out just fine.

Monday, Nov 5: Zones 3, 5, 6, 11, 13

Monday, Nov.12  Zones 1, 2, 4, 7, 8

Thursday, Nov. 22: Zones              9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 8B

Thursday, Nov. 29: Zones              3, 5, 7, 11,13

Monday, Dec. 10 : Zones                2, 4, 6, 8, 12

Note: hatched areas ( 1, 8B, 9, 10, 14, 15 & 16 ) receive only one pick-up

Figure out which zone you are in.  Note the dates and get the bags of leaves out on the street in time for the pick up.  Your tax dollars at work.

The nice part about the fall season. Everyone of those leaves is going to be on the ground – soon.

This is the nice part of the fall season.  Raking them up and chasing the squirrels off the lawn and then getting the property ready for the winter – happens every year.

There are, believe it or not, people in Burlington who don’t know about Our Burlington.  Do your neighbours a favour and tell them about the web site – the map is useful
