Rerouting for waste and recycling collection
For the first time in 20 years, the Republic Services of Washington and Clackamas Counties is rerouting its commercial front-load routes for solid waste and recycling collection.
It affects nearly 1,500 retail stores, restaurants, schools and apartments in Wilsonville while 155 Wilsonville entities' service day will change. Most customers will have the same day of service but pickup times could change.
Among other changes, additional trash and recycling routes will be added and there will no longer be Sunday services.
Republic Services is calling customers directly impacted by the changes.
According to a Republic Services press release, "The purpose of this change in routes is to better prepare for the continuing growth occurring in Wilsonville and to make fewer major changes in response to future growth. With this change we hope to have more predictable service times, a more responsive reaction to customer needs, and a reduced workload for our drivers."
Interstate 84 closures through May
Two miles of the right eastbound lane of I-84 will remain closed for an anticipated three months as crews work on the Columbia River Highway State Trail. During the lane closure, crews will make repairs to the existing bin wall around Shellrock Mountain and construct a longer segment of bin wall for the new trail. Crews will also continue work on the Summit Creek Viaduct structure.
