Spring Yard & Garden Curbside Pick-up

The Town of Creston will be conducting the Spring Curbside Yard & Garden Waste Pick-Up next week (weather permitting). The collection days will be April 2-5, 2024. Yard waste is collected by the Town Crew and is scheduled for your regular garbage day. Due to the overwhelming amounts set out, it is possible that the crew will not collect it all in one day. Leave it out and they will continue where they left off the previous day. If it has not been collected 2 days after your garbage day, please call and let us know.

How to prepare:

  • Branches and prunings (no larger than 6” in diameter) are to be wrapped in bundles of 3 feet (1 meter) - a manageable size for 1 person to pick up.
  • Leaves, twigs, grass cuttings, and organic garden waste must be placed in rigid, weather proof containers (e.g., garbage cans, cardboard boxes), something that can be quickly dumped and returned to the curbside.
  • Paper garden bags are permitted.
  • NO plastic garbage bags with yard waste will be accepted.
  • We ask that you please keep all organic yard waste separate from household garbage when placing curbside for pick up.

Yard and garden waste may not be picked up if materials are not prepared as requested. Please note:

  • The second curbside collection week will be October.
  • A reminder that yard waste is for organics only and not ‘anything found in the yard’. For example: broken lawnmowers, paving stones and garden gnomes are not accepted.
  • The RDCK landfill also takes yard waste for free in the months of April and October. Shrubs and tree branches must be less than 6” in diameter. Large loads (larger than 2.5m3 / one truck box) are at the discretion of the site attendant and may be turned away if the site is too full for the day or it looks like it is a commercial load. Plastic bags with yard waste are NOT accepted at the landfill.
