The City of Colwood provides a unique and convenient Branch Drop Off Program for Colwood residents. This program helps keep the yards in our city looking tidy and healthy. It also replaces backyard burning, which improves our air quality, protects our natural environment and creates a healthier community. (See also: Spring Clean Up)
The Public Works Yard is open for branch drop off from 8:30am to 4:00pm every Saturday (except in January, February and December when it's the 1st and 3rd Saturday). Our location is just below City Hall at 3300 Wishart Road.
Acceptable material includes branches (maximum diameter 4”), grass clippings and leaves. When preparing your load to bring to the yard, it would be appreciated if you could separate leaves from branches and grass clippings.
For further information please contact the Public Works Yard Office at 250-474-4133.
