Yard Waste / Leaves Recycling Program Details

Paper Yard Waste Bags:  In an ongoing effort to reduce the volume of waste going into landfills, the City of North Canton is now offering “Fall Yard Waste / Leaf Recycling” beginning October 20, 2019 through the week of November 24, 2019.


All yard waste must be in paper bags. There will be a free Paper Bag Handout beginning October 5th. These bags may be picked up during store hours at Mohler Lumber-True Value while supplies last.  Simply take your North Canton Utility bill showing Trash Removal Services, to Mohler Lumber-True Value located at 4214 Portage St. NW to receive up to 25 leaf bags FREE per customer. Additional bags, or if you are not a North Canton City trash removal customer, may be purchased. 

Please note: If your yard waste is not in a paper bag, it will go to the landfill.

Program Limitations

This program is limited to North Canton City (Kimble) Trash customers only.

To participate in the yard waste recycling program you simply have to put leaves into the paper bags and put them curbside on your regular trash pickup day. A separate truck will come by to pick up leaves in paper bags and recycle them.

Acceptable items are leaves, grass clippings and small branches. Please no dirt, rocks or pet waste.
