The City of Castlegar is offering a curbside yard waste collection program in April and May.
A public notice posted on the city’s website states:
“Yard waste (leaves, grass clippings, branches, tree or hedge trimmings, flowers, plants and other organics) will be collected at the curb, and then transported to the Ootischenia landfill compost site. The yard waste will eventually be utilized for landfill cover.
Yard and garden waste placed at the curb will be collected on the following dates:
– April 16 and April 30, 2013 NORTH Castlegar (north of Highway 3 and including the Woodland Park Area)
– April 17 and May 1, 2013 SOUTH Castlegar (south of Highway 3)
Place your yard waste at the curb just prior to 7:00 a.m. on your collection date.”
