Spring Leaf Exchange / Clear Bag Pick-up
April 15 - April 19, 2019
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 clear bags by 7 am at the same location as your garbage collection pickup. 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 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.
In an effort to encourage recycling and composting, residents are encouraged to put bags of leaves out a week earlier than the dates above for others to pick up for garden compost.
