Residents in Fernie will have a chance to have their yard scraps picked up for free for the next two weeks.
The city says garden waste must be bagged in clear garbage bags and tree and bush clippings have to be securely tied.
The garden scraps must be placed on the curb by 7 AM on residents’ respective pick-up days.
The city asks that residents do not pile up loose leaves and materials as you will be responsible for cleaning up windblown debris.
Here is a list of pick-up areas and dates:
- Annex (place items in alley) & Riverside – Monday May 15, Tuesday May 16
- Airport (Mt View) & Park Avenue – Wednesday May 17, Thursday May 18
