Homes in Rural Electoral Areas ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘G’ will be receiving seasonal yard waste collection during the week of October 28 to November 1.

Communities receiving this collection include Rural Oliver, Rural Osoyoos, Rural Keremeos, Cawston, Olalla and Hedley. Residents can place out an unlimited amount of properly packaged yard waste for pickup on their morning of their collection day.

Yard waste means leaves, sticks, prunings, grass and branches under 3 inches (7.5 cm) diameter. Materials should be placed in a reusable container, like a garbage can, or in kraft paper yard waste bags. Branches can be cut to 3 feet (1 m) lengths and bundled securely with string. Yard waste placed in plastic bags or containing other materials will not be collected.

Large volumes of yard waste, agricultural waste or culled fruit can be brought to any local landfill for composting. No charges apply at any landfill for loads of yard waste under 500 kg (1100 pounds). The final 2013 yard waste collection for all RDOS rural Electoral Area homes will be the last week of November.
