Leaf Collection Rules and Schedule
The City of Oregon will begin its fall leaf collection on Wednesday, October 21st. (See 2015 Leaf Collection Schedule below for detailed schedule.) Pile the leaves in the right-of-way and NOT in the street. Leaves in narrow piles are easier to collect with the city's leaf vacuum. Do not make the piles over four feet from the road edge because the hose of the leaf vacuum cannot reach farther. Please do not pile leaves next to mailboxes or signs and refrain from parking near leaf piles, as it is difficult to maneuver the hoses around obstacles and parked cars.
PLEASE NOTE, this is a LEAF PICKUP ONLY. Do not mix branches, grass clippings or any other debris with the leaf piles, as crews will leave the entire pile. This debris can damage the leaf vacuum machines causing downtime and delays in our scheduled pick-up days.
From September through the end of November, motorists could experience intermittent lane restrictions and road closures with long delays, especially during morning hours on the roads noted above. The intermittent lane restrictions and road closures are necessary to permit Burkhalter Rigging, Inc. to transport large equipment to the Oregon Clean Energy (OCE) site at 816 N. Lallendorf Road. There will be 27 heavy haul moves that will take place during this period. The intermittent lane restrictions and road closures are expected to be from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. during the days of the transport. Changeable message signs will be used to inform the public of the scheduled dates of the moves.
The next moves are scheduled for Sunday, October 11th and Monday, October 12th.
