The City of Vernon is reminding businesses that are currently enrolled in the City’s Commercial Recycling program that as of July 1, 2023, the recycling collection schedule changed from 3 times per week to 1 time per week, occurring on Wednesdays.
For those customers who have greater recycling needs, an additional collection day on Fridays is available for an additional service fee.
The type or amount of material that can be set out for collection remains the same, with unlimited blue or clear bags of ledger paper, newspaper, tin cans, aluminium, books, magazines and colored plastics with recycling symbols 1 thru 7. Cardboard must be cut and tied into bundles 2’x3’x 6”. Glass is not accepted.
The Commercial Recycling program is mandatory to all Commercial and Industrial properties within City limits (excluding Blue Jay, Predator Ridge, Foothills, Turtle Mountain and Okanagan Landing past the Yacht Club).
The commercial recycling program changes do not impact commercial garbage collection
