Free yard waste drop off

North Okanagan residents have an opportunity to get rid of their yard waste for free from Oct. 15 to Nov. 30

North Okanagan residents have an opportunity to get rid of their yard waste for free.

Trimmings, prunings, leaves, grass, mulch, and other organic material less than 20 centimetres in diameter can be taken to the Greater Vernon, Armstrong/Spallumcheen, and Lumby landfills and the Kingfisher and Cherryville transfer stations from Oct. 15 to Nov. 30.

“Free yard waste drop-off periods are traditionally very busy at our facilities,” according to Dale Danallanko, Regional District of North Okanagan recycling and facilities operations manager.

“Please ensure your load is adequately secured with a tarp or cargo net, follow the signs and directions from facility staff, and be sure to empty all bags and boxes containing yard and garden waste. Your patience and cooperation is appreciated during the free drop-off period.”

The fee for yard and garden waste at all facilities during the remainder of the year is $20 per metric tonne (two cents per kilogram).
