The City of Trail will begin its spring clean-up program starting next week in Waneta and Glenmerry through to Shavers Bench and East Trail. From April 22 to April 26, free pick up of appropriate yard and garden waste is slated for Sunningdale and West Trail. Pick up for Tadanac is scheduled for the last two days of April.

5. Branches must be bundled in short lengths, not exceeding six feet.

6. The City will only pick up a maximum of one cubic yard of refuse (approx. a ½ ton truck full) of those allowable items. Refuse in excess of this amount will be left behind.

7. All yard and garden waste to be picked up should be placed on your property line close to the area where your usual garbage pick-up is made.

8. The above described material left in your lane or at your property line will be regarded as designated for pick-up.
