Falls leaves means work for everyone
Leaves that naturally fall into the street will be picked up during the City's regular street sweeping schedule, which you can find at westlinnoregon.gov/maps/street-sweeping. More information on leaf cleanup responsibilities and how to request service assistance from the City or ODOT (for Hwy 43) can be found at westlinnoregon.gov/publicworks/leaf-cleanup. Remember, leaves that fall into yards are the property owner's responsibility. Leaves can be discarded in regular yard debris cans. Please do not put leaves from your yard in the street. With more than 2,900 storm drain catch basins citywide, the City appreciates help from citizens willing to move any leaves they see blocking storm drains or drainage along curb lines.
