City Of Hood River Restores Leaf Drop-Off

By popular demand, the City of Hood River is resuming leaf drop-off at the city’s public works facility.  City residents may bring leaves to Hood River Public Works between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays until the first significant snowfall.  City Manager Steve Wheeler says they had received several complaints about the loss of the drop-off service.  Wheeler says they initially thought the city’s new solid waste program, which began May 1 and includes large organic waste bins, combined with yard waste drop-offs at the Hood River Transfer Station for a fee would be a workable solution.  Hood River residents are still encouraged to place leaves in yard debris roll carts for pick up by Hood River Garbage Service on regularly scheduled pick up days.  City officials are trying to keep leaves out of street gutters to prevent storm drain clogging, damage to the storm-water system, or risks of street flooding. The Hood River City Public Works Department is located at 1200 18th Street.
