Spring Leaf Pick Up

2021 Spring Leaf / Clear Bag Pick up

April 19 - April 23

During this one week program, Waste Connections of Canada provides curbside collection of leaves and garden refuse in clear plastic bags on your regular garbage collection day.

Vernon residents may put out an unlimited number of transparent bags by 7 am at the same location as your garbage collection pick up. 

  • 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. 
  • Missed clear bags not reported to the City of Vernon within 24 hrs will not be picked up.
  • All coloured bags will be considered as household garbage that is limited to the usual two bags or container quota.

Please do not rake leaves onto the street as they will block storm drains and jam the street sweeper.

For further information or to report missed pick ups please call Operation Services @ 250 549-6757.
