Yard Waste Pick up Resumes

From the Regional Waste Reduction Office

February 23, 2017


Gardening may be far from your mind with snow still covering the ground, but nevertheless, yard waste collection is back on!


The first pickup of the season is also a great opportunity for anyone who may have stockpiled leaves and garden pruning’s’ from last fall to get them into the yard waste bin and out to the curb for disposal.


Starting Wednesday, March 1, all residents on municipal curbside garbage collection will benefit from yard waste pick up every two weeks until the end of November.


Put your yard waste out for collection by 7 a.m. on the morning of your regular garbage day. Please make sure the lid is closed, and that you don’t put any garbage, plastic bags, rocks, sod, flower pots, landscape cloth, or kitchen scraps into the yard waste cart.


Accepted items include:


  • Leaves, needles
  • Wood chips, bark
  • Garden plants
  • Fruit droppings
  • Grass clippings
  • Branches and pruning’s up to 5 centimetres (2 inches) in diameter and less than one metre (3 feet) in length


Up to two additional 360 litre yard waste carts can be purchased from your municipality. For additional yard waste carts and collection options, contact your municipality or follow the links at regionaldistrict.com/recycle.


To determine your yard waste collection week, please refer to the Living Greener Calendar or download the convenient free app at regionaldistrict.com/mywasteapp.  This gives you the information of the Living Greener Calendar in the palm of your hand!


If you are interested in purchasing the finished compost GlenGrow from the Glenmore Landfill please, visit  okanagancompost.ca or call 250-469-8868.
