 Instructions 

  • Leaves, pine needles and grass clippings accepted
  • Please limit debris to 50 lbs.
  • Program is for residents not commercial operations
  • Please bring debris loose or in a paper bag, not in plastic bags
  • We'll also collect food donations for the Oregon Food Bank 

Clean Water Services composts about 10,000 cubic yards (about 1,000 truck loads) of leaves each year which includes leaves from our regular street sweeping program, curbside leaf collection and the annual leaf disposal program. Leaves are taken to West Union Gardens and made into mulch.

Participating in the leaf disposal program helps:

  • Reduce localized flooding caused by leaf-clogged storm drains.
  • Keep nutrients from decaying yard debris out of local creeks, wetlands and the Tualatin River.
  • Keep streets safe and clear for bikes and pedestrians.

This program is funded by Clean Water Services' $8.25 per month Surface Water Management (SWM) fee. This fee pays for flood management and water quality protection and improvement programs including street sweeping, 24-hour emergency flood response, catch basin cleaning, water quality monitoring, watershed planning and public education.

The partner cities below also have residential leaf programs. Please contact your city for details.
