Clean the Gutter
To assist with keeping the storm drains operating properly, please sweep up the smaller storm debris and leaves from your gutter and from the storm drains on your street. Keeping the storm drains open and unobstructed will allow rain and melt water to drain properly. City crews will be sweeping the streets, but due to the heavy volume of storm debris, they could use a helping hand. Your assistance with keeping storm drains clean will help prevent flooding, due to storm debris clogging up storm drains, culverts, and drainages.
The nine drop-off sites will remain open until the City has completed clearing debris in each area. If you do not want to wait for the crews to make it to your neighborhood, using a drop-off site is the best way to dispose of your storm debris.
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)
Heritage Park Willamette Park (Sunburst)
Northwest Park (Tarver)
Yard Waste Drop-Off Facility at Wastewater Treatment Plant (3101 S. Garner Lake Road)
