Tips to ensure large item are collected
For safety reasons, fridges and freezers with locking doors must have the door removed and placed next to the unit prior to its collection. Pressurized fridge and freezer doors do not require removal. Mattress and box spring count as two separate items. The Town of Osoyoos curbside Large Item Collection Program does not accept appliances containing Freon (fridges, freezers, and air conditioning units).
Have your items are at the curb before 7:00 am on your collection day. If an item is not collected by the end of the day, leave a message with Waste Connections of Canada at 250-490-3888 (toll free 1-866-998-4888) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your address and contact information.
