The season is changing quickly from "Fall" to "Fell". Don't let clogged stormwater drains dampen your spirits or drain your wallet. Clark County residents can once again use the Free Leaf Disposal Coupon for disposal of leaves at four drop-off sites, from October 1 through December 31, 2017.
Fall leaves are beautiful on trees, but not on the streets, where they can clog stormwater drains, cause localized flooding, and create driving hazards. Not only that, but intentionally blowing, raking or sweeping leaves onto city streets or county roads is considered littering and is unlawful.
The Free leaf Disposal Coupons, designed to assist residents with piles of leaves, can be used at these four locations:
- City Bark, 2419 N.E. Andresen Road, 360-253-8461. Hours: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday in October; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in November and December. Check in advance for holiday hours.
- H & H Wood Recyclers, 8401 N.E. 117th Ave., 360-892-2805. Hours: 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday in October; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday in November and December; 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. Check in advance for holiday hours.
- Triangle Resources, 612 S.E. Union St., Camas, 360-834-7253. Hours: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Check in advance for holiday hours.
- West Van Materials Recovery Center, 6601 N.W. Old Lower River Road, 360-737-1727. Hours: 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Check in advance for holiday hours.
The coupons are good for disposal of up to 5 cubic yards of leaves only by Clark County residents. Leaves must be emptied from bags at the disposal site. Don't forget to cover and secure your load when driving to the site! Please note that regular disposal prices will apply to branches and other yard debris, as well as mixed loads of leaves and yard debris.
Leaf coupons will not be available at the disposal sites, so be sure to get your coupon before you go. Look for coupons in a variety of places, like your neighborhood newsletter, curbside recycling newsletter, or click here to download and print your own copy.
