City of Kenora Composting Program
The City of Kenora has a Leaf and Yard Waste Composting Program for the Kenora Area Landfill.
Beginning May 1st until October 31st, residential customers can drop off leaf and yard waste into a special green bin at the Transfer Station. This is a free service for residential customers!
Leaf and yard waste should be placed in a compostable paper bag [bags may be available to purchase at our local hardware stores] and then dropped into the green composting bin at the Transfer Station.
Plastic bags will not be accepted for the Leaf and Yard Waste Program. Plastic bags are not compostable and very costly for the City to remove yard waste from the plastic bag. Paper bags are easy to use and environmentally friendly.
You may also use a container to bring the leaves and yard waste to the Transfer Station and then empty into the bin.
Curbside collection is not available for the Leaf and Yard Waste Composting Program.

- Leaves and brush
- Tree limbs (less than 25 mm or 1 inch)
- Grass clippings
- Garden waste
