Come 7 a.m. on Nov. 5, trucks will be out on the road in Salmon Arm for the one-day, curbside waste collection service.

To be eligible for the service, yard waste must be placed unbundled in compostable (kraft) paper bags. Items accepted for collection include leaves, clippings (grass, lawn and hedge), sod, flowers, non-invasive weeds, vegetable stacks, shrubs and shrub or tree branches of up to one inch (2.5 cm) diameter and three feet (91 cm) in length.

If trucks are unable to reach your neighbourhood on collection day, bags will be collected the following or subsequent days.
