City Of Eugene Cleanup Of Its Fallen Trees To Begin Tuesday

Brian Bull

Eugene Public Works says beginning tomorrow (12/20), its crews will begin picking up storm-related debris of trees owned by the City of Eugene.     

EPW says the immediate focus will be on major streets across all regions of the city.  Storm debris in the public right-of-way -- including the sidewalk – will be cleared.  Then efforts will shift to the neighborhoods.

“Crews will only go through the city one time and will not return and pick up additional storm debris,” says an EPW release. 

“Residents should not place privately-owned tree debris curbside for pickup. Homeowners are responsible for cleaning up and disposing of privately-owned trees.

"Public Works does not have plans to set up a debris drop off location for residents to dispose of their privately owned tree debris.”

EPW invites locals to monitor debris cleanup at www.eugene-or.gov/leaf.   There will be a map showing where crews have already worked on debris removal, which will be updated at the end of each business day.

Additionally, EPW is cancelling its annual leaf and delivery program for this year. That’s because leaves and debris cleanup are being combined for “efficiency and effectiveness.”
