Yard Refuse Disposal Aug 8 2020 – OMEI Wapiti Pit 10:00am to 12:00pm

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 10:00am 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.
