Residential Garbage

Starting in August 2021, the City of Vernon is moving to automated residential garbage collection. What does this mean? New standardized garbage collection carts will be provided to each Vernon household, to be used on a go-forward basis. Carts will be emptied using an automated arm on the collection vehicles.

Carts will be delivered to the front of households throughout August and September, and are to be put into service as soon as they’re received. Manual garbage collection will continue for households until the automated carts are delivered.

To learn more about the transition to automated residential garbage collection, please check out these Frequently Asked Questions.

If you have further questions, the City encourages you to keep checking this webpage, as more information will be added as we get closer to this exciting change to help improve Vernon’s garbage collection process.
