Colwood residents looking to free their yard of unsightly branches, leaves and grass are in luck.
The City’s public works yard will be open for branch drop off again, starting in January on the first and third Saturday of every month from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., including statutory holidays.
The program helps keep yards looking tidy without backyard burning.
Acceptable materials include branches (that are a maximum diameter of four inches), grass clippings and leaves.
When dropping materials off, the City is asking residents to separate leaves from branches and grass clippings.
The branch drop off takes place just below City Hall at 3300 Wishart Rd.
The program is free for Colwood residents and proof of residency may be required.
