If you are a resident of Wood Village, OR and find yourself needing a place for the leaves that have been piling up in your yard, the city of Wood Village is providing you with a place to put your leaves–for free!
The cool, windy fall weather causes trees to shed their leaves which can clog storm drains causing localized flooding and deteriorated pavement. Raking or depositing leaves in the street IS NOT an allowed disposal option. Wet leaves on the street can be just as slippery as snow and ice creating dangerous conditions for drivers and pedestrians.
These problems can be avoided by composting leaves and yard debris or putting leaves into your yard debris can for the waste hauler to remove on your regularly scheduled collection day.
In an effort to assist you, the City is providing a leaf drop off area during November and December.
Where: Donald L. Robertson Park, 24300 NE Halsey in the parking lot against the wall north of the Tot Lot
When: November 1st through December 31st
What: Leaves and Small Branches Only – NO garbage or large limbs/stumps
Who: Wood Village residents ONLY
Please deposit the yard debris loose in the designated area, Do Not Leave bags or containers.
If you have any questions please call Marie at 503-489-6859.
