Can you believe that the first official day of spring is just days away? It’s true! March 20th is the first day of spring. For most people, it also means it is a great time for preparing for all the yard work that will need to be done.
Each spring, around Ottawa and all of Canada, people prepare for the months that lie ahead. It is the perfect time to start planning what yard work needs to be done, what will be planted, and where you will plant it all. While you are at it, you will probably have some yard waste, such as branches, bushes or other items that didn’t survive the winter. It is also a great time to clean out the garage and get rid of all you have been storing up all winter.
So what do you do with all that yard waste? You gather it up and prepare for the upcoming yard waste collection through the City of Ottawa. The next pick-up date will be April 26th to the 30th. Just remember that everything needs to be in compostable yard waste bags, no plastic bags (as they do not biodegrade).
