Yard waste depot

Learn about our annual yard waste curbside collection and year-round drop-off locations.

Quinte West residents have three options for leaf and yard waste collection:

  • Bag leaves for the City of Quinte West’s spring and fall leaf and yard waste curbside collection.
  • Mulch leaves with a lawnmower and let them remain on your property. 
  • Drop-off leaf and yard waste to a year-round drop-off location.

Year-round yard waste drop-off

Year-round yard waste can be dropped off at the Frankford landfill site at 1850 Fish and Game Club Rd., Frankford. There is no fee, and your waste does not need to be bagged. Yard waste includes grass clippings, small branches, and leaves.

Drop-off times:

Monday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Wednesday: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
