November 7 and December 5

Instructions

  • Leaves, pine needles and grass clippings accepted
  • Bring debris loose or in a paper bag (no plastic)
  • Please limit debris to 50 lbs. per bag

  • We'll also collect food donations for the Oregon Food Bank 

Clean Water Services collects about 10,000 cubic yards (about 1,000 truckloads) of leaves each year and takes them 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' $9.25 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.
