Fall leaf pick-up program experiencing delay

News

The City of Vernon would like to advise residents that the fall leaf pick-up program has experienced a delay in schedule, due to higher than normal volumes of program participation.

Clear bag pick-up for residences with scheduled garbage collection between Monday and Tuesday have been completed. Bag collection for residences with scheduled garbage collection between Wednesday and Friday are anticipated to be picked up by the end of next week.

As a reminder:

  • All bags must be transparent, allowing the contents to be visible.
  • Any clear bags weighing more than 23 kilograms (50 lbs) will be considered overweight and will not be picked up. 
  • All coloured bags will be considered as household garbage and not collected.

The City apologizes for any inconvenience the delay may have caused and appreciates everyone’s patience as the program is completed. For more information on the semi-annual program, please visit the City’s website at www.vernon.ca/leaf-pickup
