Spring Chipping

The City of Vernon provides curbside pickup of residential prunings.

City of Vernon and Foothills Subdivision: 
    March 28 - March 31   /  April 4 - April 7
Okanagan Landing and Blue Jay:   
    April 11 - April 14   /  April 18 - April 21

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, please observe the following:

  • Same day/location as garbage pickup
  • 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

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.
