Eugene Public Works is asking residents to keep storm-related debris out of the street and off the sidewalks. Crews have completed their one-time sweep of the city. They picked up downed trees, limbs, and leaves from the public right-of-way following the December ice storm.
“Crews were able to clear more than 9,000 cubic yards of trees and limbs off the streets in about seven weeks,” said Jackie Hallett, acting Incident Commander.
Staff will not make another round through the city to pick up debris.
Residents are responsible for disposing of damage to trees on private property. They’re urged to utilize contractors, local recycling centers, or yard debris containers to get rid of the storm-related debris.
