Fall Brush and Leaf Pickup

October 19, 2022

The Canton Village DPW will begin curbside brush pick up on Thursday, October 27. Regular fall pick-ups will continue through Thursday, November 24.

In keeping with municipal recycling and sustainability programs and efforts to reduce our environmental impact, the Village has eliminated the use of plastic bags for leaves and brush. All yard waste MUST be left in paper leaf bags, which are available at most of our local stores and are competitively priced.

The crews will pick up brush, leaves, and grass bagged in paper bags, and they will chip and remove wood and branches under 6” in diameter. Refuse in plastic bags will be left on your curbside.

During the pick-up period, the crew follows a route that covers about 16 miles of Village roads. Once complete they run the route again, following a system to ensure they cover all neighborhoods equally.

Questions about brush pick up can be directed to Village Superintendent Tim Bacon at supt@cantonny.org or 315-368-2871 x2.
