Spring Yard Waste Collection – Week of May 1st, 2023

All the details are in our Program Guide.


The City will be providing yard waste collection the week of May 1.

All collection zones are to have yard waste out at the curb by 7 AM on the Monday May 1, 2023. This provides the most flexibility for our collector and eliminates any confusion for residents as to when yard waste is to be put out. Collection of yard waste will not necessarily follow the same days as the regular curbside collection program.

It usually takes 3 to 4 days for our collector to get all the yard waste collected. Please call SCV Waste Solutions if your yard waste has not been collected by end-of-day Thursday of those weeks (250.832.9292 / Friday is typically reserved for missed collections.

All items, including branches, must be placed loose in paper yard waste bags. Paper yard waste bags can be found at local retailers and grocery stores. DO NOT use compostable plastic bags.

Materials will be accepted in unlimited quantities, provided that each bag does not weigh more than 20 kg (44 lbs). In order to prevent breakage, place your bags in a dry, covered location until collection week.

Accepted materials include:

  • small branches (do not bundle)
    • Branches may be up to 1” (2.5 cm) in diameter and 3’ (91 cm) in length. 
  • leaves grass and hedge clippings
