With spring around the corner and more residents preparing their yard for the warm days ahead, the City is sharing tips for proper recycling of leaf and yard waste and reminding residents of upcoming Compost Giveaway events beginning this weekend.

Spring Cleanup:
• Place yard waste in a brown paper yard waste bag, bushel basket, or an open-top rigid reusable container with handles on opposite sides. If using a container, please mark it with City of Hamilton yard waste stickers placed around the container. Yard waste stickers are free. Visit for a list of pick up locations.
• Yard waste is not accepted in the green bin.
• Branches more than 7cm (2.5in) in diameter are not collected curbside and can be taken to a Community Recycling Centre, free of charge for residents.
• If using a reusable container to dispose of yard waste, drill holes into the sides and bottom of your container to allow drainage and air circulation. Remove the lid before placing at the curb for collection.
• Keep each bag, bundle or container of yard waste under 22kg (50lb) to maintain the safety of waste collection operators.
• Roll paper bags shut at the top with no branches sticking out. Store bags in a dry location until your collection day.
• Branches, sticks and twigs must be tied with twine in bundles no longer than 1.2m (4ft) and .75m (2.5ft) in diameter.

Compost Giveaways:
• Throughout the year, the City picks up residents’ yard waste as part of the curbside leaf and yard waste collection program. After it’s picked up, it’s processed and turned into nutrient-rich compost. As a thank you for participating in the yard waste program, the City gives some of the compost back to residents to use on vegetable gardens, flower beds and lawns.
• This year, the City is hosting its annual Compost Giveaway over three Saturdays, April 30, May 7 and May 14, 2022 between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. (while quantities last) at Turner Park, 344 Rymal Rd E
• Residents are asked to bring their own buckets or containers and shovel to the giveaway location this weekend.
• A 15-minute time limit for loading compost per vehicle will be in place.
• Compost is for residents only and not available for commercial businesses.
• Further details can be found at:

Compost Tips:
• When using fresh compost in vegetable gardens and flower beds, apply 2cm (.75in) of compost and work into the soil.
• For new beds add 2-5cm (.78–1.96in) of compost and work into the soil to 12cm (4.72in) in depth, plant and water accordingly.

COVID-19 has changed the way the City engages with the community, but it has not changed how important your feedback is to the decision-making process. Over the past two years, we have shifted engagement efforts online with virtual public meetings, live streamed events and digital tools to make it easier for you to share your thoughts with us.

As we continue to evolve our public engagement efforts, we are committed to seeking diverse opinions, experiences and information from our community to ensure you are informed and involved in shaping City decisions.

We invite you to take a short survey to tell us your thoughts and experiences with City-led public engagement. Your feedback will be used in the development of a corporate framework and policy to help shape City-led engagement moving forward.

Print copies of the survey are also available at local Municipal Service Centres, City Recreation Centres and Hamilton Public Library branches.

Let’s reimagine public participation, together. Learn more:

Statement by Mayor Fred Eisenberger

Congratulations to Hamilton’s Sarah Nurse and the entire Team Canada Women’s Olympic Hockey Team on their gold medal win.

Sarah Nurse scored the opening goal in the 2022 Gold medal game where Team Canada defeated the United States 3-2. She also got an assist, setting a Canadian record for the most points in a single tournament.

Her recording breaking didn’t stop there as she is now the first black woman to win a gold medal in hockey.

All of Hamilton is so proud of Sarah. Her hard work and determination inspires us all.

Sarah exemplifies the very best of Hamilton. We could not be more proud that she is now a gold medal Olympic champion.

It is so wonderful that Sarah is bringing gold back to the Hammer!

Congratulations to Sarah Nurse and the entire Team Canada Women’s Olympic Hockey Team. Well done!
