The City of Rossland’s public works department will be picking up organic material starting Oct. 28.

The city will be driving by each residence once, so all items must be on the boulevard by 7 a.m. on Oct. 28.

Any items placed on the boulevard after Oct. 28 will not be picked up and the home owner will be responsible for taking it to the landfill.

Tree trimmings must be under 10 centimetres in diameter and three metres in length. Piles can be no larger than 1.2 metres in diameter and a limit to a maximum of three piles per residence.

For yard waste, bundle branches with a sturdy twine and place on unmaintained boulevard so the city’s loader will be able to easily access the pile. Any larger branches must be taken to the landfill in Trail.

Leaves and grass clipping only. Absolutely no tree trimmings, dirt, sod, garden waste and rocks, It is preferential if piles were placed on tarps on the boulevard or put in clear plastic bag not weighing more than 10 kilograms. The city is not responsible for any damage to tarps.

Any overweight bags will be left on the boulevard and reported to public works.

Note: Items are picked up with a front-end loader so do not place items on manicured boulevards to prevent boulevard damage.

The City of Rossland will pick up only the items listed. It will be the owner’s responsibility to take all other refuse to the appropriate recycling facilities or the landfill site.

Any concerns please contact public works at 250-362-2328.
