SPRING CHIPPING…DON’T MISS OUT!

The Corporation of the City of Vernon will provide curbside pickup of residential
prunings on the following dates in 2014

City of Vernon and Foothills Subdivision:

March 25- March 28; April 1-April 4

Okanagan Landing and Blue Jay:

This program is funded by residential garbage 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, please observe the following:

  • Do not pile with neighbour’s
  • Do not tie with wire
  • No roots or dirt in pile
  • Pile thorns separately
  • No branches or tree trunks more than 4" in diameter
  • Stack all prunings with butt ends facing street or lane.
Chipping Program
Tangled piles or excessive volumes may result in material left behind, therefore property owners can hire a chipper or haul to the landfill.

Customers using bin service must make their own arrangements to dispose of prunings
