City of Wilsonville hosts day to dispose of bulky waste; multiple city advisory commissions have openings

Dig safe this spring

April is National Safe Digging Month, and NW Natural reminds anyone who plans to dig to call 811 to have underground utilities located first.

Reaching utility notification centers in Oregon and Washington is simple and free. Two days before the start of a project call 811, register online or use NW Natural's new safety app to have underground lines marked.

Got Bulky Waste?

In partnership with Metro and Republic Services, the City of Wilsonville is holding its annual Bulky Waste Day on Saturday, May 19, 9 am-1 pm, at Republic Services, 10295 SW Ridder Road in Wilsonville.

This yearly opportunity, available only to Wilsonville residents, is provided free of charge. Participants must provide proof or residence, and are encouraged to donate hygiene items — including toilet paper, soap, shampoo, laundry soap, deodorant — to help Wilsonville Community Sharing's Food Bank provide assistance to local families in need.

Bulky Waste Day gives residents the opportunity to drop off large, bulky items that do not fit into standard-sized garbage cans. Accepted items include dishwashers, televisions, refrigerators, computers, monitors, stoves, dryers, water heaters, couches, mattresses, scrap metal, tables and chairs, and clean, untreated wood. The program does not accept construction debris of any type, propane bottles or canisters, paint, batteries, solvents, thinners, household garbage or car tires.
