The city resumes bi-weekly yard waste collection next week.

City hall said the seasonal curbside collection begins Monday April 28, following the waste and recycling collection schedule.

Yard waste will be collected at the curb every other week, on the same collection day as recycling and garbage.

The program continues until November, weather permitting.

The yard waste can be placed in: reusable containers without a lid; cardboard boxes; or, paper yard waste bags.

However, yard waste placed in plastic bags will not be picked up.

Winnipeg launched its yard waste pick-up program in 2012 and last year saw 19,000-tonnes collected and composted at the Brady Road landfill.
