Not sure what to do with all the leaves piling up in your yard? There are several disposal options available throughout the community for leaves and other yard debris. In addition to composting leaves or taking them to a designated drop-off site, you can use your weekly yard debris container provided by Republic Service. For additional leaf collection, use “Recyclable Kraft” bags for an additional fee of $3.50 per bag. Recyclable Kraft bags are available at most home improvement stores. Do not dispose of leaves in your garbage can.
Remember, do not put leaves onto the street. These leaves can clog catch basins and cause flooding. Lake Oswego City Code prohibits blowing, sweeping, raking, or otherwise depositing debris onto sidewalks or streets. In addition, property owners are responsible for keeping sidewalks abutting their property clean of leaves, ice and snow, and other material which may make the sidewalk hazardous.
Designated drop-off sites:
- Dan Davis Recycling Center, West Linn
- Metro South Transfer Station, Oregon City
- Pacific Land Clearing & Recycling, Oregon City
- S & H Landscaping Supplies, Tualatin
Another option is to compost your leaves.
