Annual Spring Cleanup

May 10-17, 2021 (All Day)

The City of Fernie is once again offering residential households within the City of Fernie FREE pick up of LAWN AND GARDEN WASTE (NO Household Garbage – just grass clippings, brush, weeds and small tree branches less than 6” in diameter).  Garden waste must be placed on the curb by 7:00am on your pickup day in the same location as regular garbage pick-up in all areas except the Annex and Maintown which will be picked up in the alley.  You DO NOT HAVE TO REGISTER for this service.   These simple chores will also help reduce wildfire risk and aid public safety in the Fernie wildland/urban interface. Help Fernie Fire Rescue and the City of Fernie establish community resilience in relation to wildfire.

Garden waste must be bagged in clear plastic bags and tree/brush clippings must be securely bundled, tied and piled in such a way that it can be picked up by a loader.  Please do not pile up loose leaves and materials – you will be responsible for cleaning up windblown debris.
