Fall Clean Up Next Week

The City of Fernie is offering free curb-side collection of lawn and garden waste to residential households next week, October 12 - 15, 2021, as part of the FireSmart program.

Registration is not required for this service, however we ask residents to follow these instructions:

  • Garden waste must be placed on the curb by 4pm 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
  • 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.
  • Please do not inlcude garbage – just grass clippings, brush, weeds and small tree branches less than 6” in diameter.
