During the weeks of unlimited collection, residents with curbside waste collection in Penticton can put out an unlimited amount of yard waste after filling their city-issued cart.

The city is reminding residents of the following as unlimited yard waste collection approaches:

  • Place yard waste at your usual collection point by 7 a.m. on your regular collection day.
  • If your additional yard waste is not collected, please leave it at your collection point as a second truck may be required to pick it up.
  • Yard waste contained in plastic bags will not be accepted.
  • Additional yard waste must be placed in paper bags or reusable containers marked as “yard waste”. Please do not use small buckets or containers.
  • Bundle branches using string or twine, and ensure the prunings are no more than three feet in length, three inches in diameter and 50 pounds in weight.
  • Please leave a minimum of 3ft/1m of space between carts and additional yard waste
