The City of Vernon provides curbside pickup of residential prunings.

City of Vernon and Foothills Subdivision:
April 4 - April 7 / April 10 - April 13
Okanagan Landing and Blue Jay:
April 18 - April 21 / April 25 - April 28

This program is funded by residential yard recycling customers and is provided on the same day and location as regular garbage pickup. Missed piles not reported to The City of Vernon within 24 hours after the second week will not be picked up. As the service provides only 10 minutes maximum chipping per customer each week,.

During this one week program, Progressive Waste Solutions provides curbside collection of leaves and garden refuse in clear plastic bags on your regular garbage collection day. This program will run from April 10 - April 14

Vernon residents may put out an unlimited number of clear bags by 7 am at the same location as your garbage collection pickup. All coloured bags will be considered as household garbage that is limited to the usual two bags or container quota. Please do not rake leaves onto the street as they will block storm drains and jam the street sweeper. In an effort to encourage recycling and composting, residents are encouraged to put bags of leaves out a week earlier than the dates above for others to pick up for garden compost.
