Spring Pruning and Yard Waste Pick Up - Starting April 14, 2020

In order to help limit the number of individuals visiting the Regional District of the North Okanagan’s Diversion and Disposal Facilities (DDF) we will be continuing with the Spring Pruning & Yard Waste Pick up program as planned. Please note the program may be cancelled or postponed if the DDF is closed at that time. For the safety of others, please do not leave your home to set out yard waste if you are self-isolating or in quarantine.

The pickup is scheduled to begin April 14, 2020. Material must be at the curb before 7:00 am.

Bundled Pruning Pick Up

  • Prunings must be tied in bundles with string (no wire of any kind)
  • Bundle size must be manageable
  • Bundles are to be stacked parallel to the street, away from other objects, for ease of pick-up
  • Maximum diameter of pruning = 4 inches
  • Maximum length of pruning = 6 feet
  • No roots or dirt in the bundle
  • Prunings with thorns are to be bundled separately

Bundled Organics Pick Up

  • Garden waste such as leaves, needles, clippings, and other material that cannot be bundled must be in see-through plastic bags.  Any other types of bags or boxes will not be picked up.
  • No loose material will be picked up
  • Maximum weight of bag = 50 pounds
  • Bags are to be placed at the curb and away from bundled prunings
  • Leaves are not to be raked onto the street

Materials not meeting the above requirements will not be picked up. 

The Regional Recycling and Disposal Facilities will be accepting compostable material year-round for free. Contact the Regional District of North Okanagan for more information at (250) 550-3700 or visit their website www.rdno.ca. The RDNO asks that residents consider delaying non-essential trips to DDFs until the current pandemic subsides. While they are open regular summer hours, they ask if you could wait a couple of weeks to get rid of that old mattress, broken refrigerator, or pile of yard waste.
