Spring clean in Golden City

City of Rossland public works staff will be picking up organic material starting Monday, April 28.

It’s time to spruce up the spruce in Rossland.

City of Rossland public works staff will be picking up organic material starting Monday, April 28.

The schedule below shows the area and dates for collection:

• South of Columbia (including Redstone area), April 28- May 2

• North of Columbia (including Pinewood, Blackbear Area, Red Mountain area), May 5-9

The city will be driving by each residence once. Please ensure all items are on the boulevard by 7 a.m. starting the Monday of the week of pick up.

Any items placed on boulevard after city crews have passed by will not be picked up.

Tree trimmings must be under 10 centimetres (three inches) in diameter and three metres (10 feet) in length. Piles can be no larger than 1.2 m. (four feet) in diameter, and homeowners are limited to a maximum of three piles per home.

Do not bundle piles. Just place them on an unmaintained boulevard so our loader will be able to easily access your pile.

For yard waste, only leaves and grass clippings can be placed in a pile on the unmaintained boulevard or be placed in clear plastic bags not weighing more than nine kilograms (20 pounds).

Any overweight bags will be left on the boulevard. Absolutely no tree trimmings, dirt, sod or rocks can be placed in the bags.

For gravel and sand, please rake it onto the asphalt surface (do not make piles).

The City of Rossland staff 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.

Once pick-up in an area is completed, the city will send the sweeper around to clean the street in the weeks following.

If people have any concerns regarding pick up, please contact public works at 362-2328.

Please note there will be no fall cleanup.
