The Corporation of the District of Saanich (District) - Public Works - Solid Waste Services Annual Residential Leaf Collection Program runs late October to early January annually collecting curbside leaf piles from residents throughout the municipality. Leaves are vacuumed and mulched in specially designed trucks with a maximum capacity of 10 tonnes or 20 cubic yards. There are approximately 300 loads annually equal to 3000 tonnes or 6000 cubic yards.
A large percentage of the product is committed to Saanich Parks and Public Works and various community projects however we often have surplus leaf mulch available. Quantities available will be determined in consideration to Saanich volume requirements, program efficiency (e.g., trucking time, drop site location, hours of operation).
Saanich reserves the right to limit or terminate all loads based on its discretion on efficiency of the program and on the interest of the Residents and District as a whole.
