Colwood yard waste drop-off set for Dec. 4, 18

Residents may drop off branches, grass clippings and leaves at the public works yard

Colwood residents looking to get rid of yard waste will have a pair of opportunities to do so in December.

A city release reports the public works yard will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on two Saturdays, Dec. 4 and Dec. 18.

Residents may bring branches with a diameter no larger than four inches, grass clippings and leaves.

All three materials must be separated before arrival at the drop-off point.

The program is free of charge and restricted to Colwood residents. Proof of residency may be required at the gate, and private contractors dropping off waste for a Colwood resident must bring a note with the resident’s name, address, phone number and the amount of truckloads expected to be dropped off that day.

For more information, contact public works at 250-474-4133.
