City of Winnipeg residents can recycle their yard waste by dropping it off at any of the Leaf It With Us depots, seven days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. The yard waste will be composted into a reusable soil-like material and used to landscape finished landfill areas.

· tree clippings, small branches (no more than 10 centimetres or 4 inches in diameter and must be bundled and tied).
The depots do not accept sand, street sweepings or garbage of any kind, including animal waste.
