2022 Champlain Park “Help Build a Forest” Leaf Drop
Week two of our leaf collection campaign is here-a big thank you to those who have already contributed! Be sure to bag-up your tree leaves and bring them to the north end of Champlain Park (the de-paved section of Pontiac Ave,) between Cowley Ave. and Carleton Ave. No garden waste or other materials, please. Volunteers will accept your tree leaf donations (in compostable bags) at the concrete planters from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the following Sunday mornings: October 23, and 30.
Your leaves will be put to good use in our neighbourhood’s newest tree planting sites. Leaf bags will be inspected on your arrival at the drop-off site. Volunteers also plan to collect bagged leaves from neighbourhood driveways on the City’s regularly scheduled waste collection day. Please help them out by slightly separating your tree leaf waste bags from other yard waste on collection day.
Thank you for all of your support in helping us to rehabilitate our community’s natural green spaces!
