Spring Chipping

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, please observe the following:

  • *No chipping on April 14th, Good Friday
  • 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.
