Yard Refuse Disposal May 30 2020 9:00am – 12:00pm OMEI Wapiti Pit

We would like to thank Ron Palmer and Osoyoos Mountain Estates for working with us to find a location to collect yard refuse.

The site is to be used for the disposal of materials to aid in FireSmarting your property. Last weekend large rocks had been dropped off and this is a safety issue if struck by a vehicle or tractor.

Examples of materials accepted are:

Grass, leaves, needles etc.
Brush, branches etc.
Please Note:

Items being brought in bags, boxes, etc. are to be emptied and the containers taken away.
NO construction debris is to be brought in.
Any abuse of the site will result in its immediate closure.
A member of AMCS/FireSmart committee will open and close the site and also monitor the origin and material coming into the site.

The hours of operation are 09:00am to 12:00pm. The site is located on Wapiti. Turn onto Wapiti and take the first road to the right.

Protocol for running the pit this year will be:

1. Have a single lane of traffic with occupants remaining in vehicle until entry into pit.

2. Allow only 3 vehicles in the pit at a time, when drivers exit they must social distance from each other.

3. We will be asking people to provide their name and address which we will now write down ourselves.

Bearwise

0F6186AF-55EA-45F2-9EEE-1BCD2FAD5648

There is a mama black bear and her 3 cubs roaming about, so far on Blacktail, Mule Deer and Peregrine.  We have been posting on Facebook, to remind residents about remaining bear safe – keeping garbage in a secure (bear-safe) container or shed and preferably don’t put garbage out the night before.  Also, don’t use bird feeders/ hummingbird feeders, keep grills clean and practice bear-safe composting.  If walking, carry bear spray and keep dogs on leash.  If you disturb a mama bear and her cubs, it may charge.  We really want to keep bears and people safe with positive interactions. Here is the link to Wildsafe BC on bears:  https://wildsafebc.com/black-bear/

You can learn more about other animal species that we share the land with here: https://wildsafebc.com/species/ – which include printable PDF’s
