Leaves and grass clipping only. Absolutely no tree trimmings, dirt, sod, garden waste and rocks, It is preferential if piles were placed on tarps on the boulevard or put in clear plastic bag not weighing more than 10 kilograms. The city is not responsible for any damage to tarps.

Any overweight bags will be left on the boulevard and reported to public works.
