Please place yard waste in the parking lanes. Higher density areas (Stone Mountain, Mountain Park Co-Ops, etc.) will have designated pick-up locations, please refer to the below map for the locations.

There will also be a hazardous waste pick-up on this day. Click here to see what is, and what is not accepted. Please ensure that all household hazardous waste is properly labeled, stored, and sealed, and not mixed in with the yard waste.


What is FireSmart?

FireSmart helps communities located in forested areas to reduce the risk of wildfire to homes and neighbourhoods. It also helps property owners and communities understand the wildfire risk and how to make homes more resilient to fire. The combination of community-wide fuel reduction and backyard-level FireSmart work is our community's best defense against wildfires.
