Waste Collection Routing and Scheduling Changes

Starting this December OK Environmental Waste Systems Ltd will be making some adjustments to its current curbside collection schedule. Some residents in the Central Okanagan Region might see a change to their collection day, while the majority of residents will remain unaffected.

The route changes will be phased in over a three month period starting in West Kelowna on December 3, 2012.

All residents affected by the change will be notified on their current collection day, one to two weeks prior to a change, by either a “door knocker” attached to their front door or an “information packet” attached to their bin. The information provided will give the exact date of their next scheduled collection day.

The conclusion of the yard waste collection on November 30, 2012 provides OK Environmental Waste Systems the ability to schedule extra trucks and staff during the transitions.

Information on schedule changes can be obtained simply by visiting our newly updated website www.okews.com and clicking the My Collection Day link or contacting our office directly at 250.868.3211.
