The previously announced schedule for storm debris cleanup had to be suspended Monday due to the forecast of snow. A revised cleanup schedule will be released at a later date.
The primary reason for the suspension of cleanup activities is that the City trucks hauling storm debris are also snowplow trucks, and require a six-hour process to be rigged/dressed for plowing. Based on the forecast and results of this storm, a contractor may be used to perform the scheduled cleanup with City crews taking over after the storm has passed.
Citizens with debris are encouraged to keep debris from being placed and moving into the street - this could seriously affect plowing operations.
All drop-off sites remain open:
Eight of the nine drop-off sites [PDF] are located in City Park parking lots and will be open 24/7. If you transport debris to a drop-off site, please follow these guidelines:
Please cover your load to keep leaves and other storm debris from falling out of your truck/trailer.
Please drop your storm debris in the areas marked by cones.
Only use the drop-sites for storm debris, do not dump trash, yard waste or any other materials at the drop sites.
Drop-off site locations:
City Park/City Pool (upper parking lot)
Hidden Valley Park
Collins Heights Park
Dalbey Park (near Little League Fields)
Willamette Park (Sunburst)
Northwest Park (Tarver)
Yard Waste Drop-Off Facility at Wastewater Treatment Plant (3101 S. Garner Lake Road)
