Leaf drop-off sites are only open during the leaf collection program in October and November. During the rest of the year, please bag loose leaves and leave at the curb for yard waste pick-up. 

There are several drop-off sites located across the city where residents can take their leaves.

No special bags are required as leaves are debagged and piled loosely in these locations for collection. In order to save both time and money, we respectfully request that you debag your leaves at each site.

The city currently operates nine of these sites, located at:

  1. Schaeffer Park (Bloomingdale Road)

  2. Breithaupt Park (Kinsmen Park - off Union Street)

  3. Kitchener Auditorium (Ottawa Street North entrance)

  4. Meinzinger Park Soccer Fields (Homer Watson Boulevard)

  5. Lions Arena (Rittenhouse Road)

  6. Southwest Optimist Sports Field (Pioneer Drive)

  7. Cherry Park (Strange Street at Waverly Road)

  8. Victoria Street South at Eastforest Trail (Eastforest Trail parking lot)

  9. Hofstetter Park (40 Hofstetter Avenue)


These drop-off locations are for LEAVES ONLY. All other materials left at the drop-off locations will be considered illegal dumping which is subject to a fine. You may also take your leaves directly to the Waterloo Region Landfill.
