Wintry weather disrupts garbage, recycling pick-up in Clackamas County

Garbage and recycling collection has been disrupted in Clackamas County because of the recent storm.

As a result of the inclement weather:

Residents can find contact information about their garbage hauler at www.clackamas.us/recycling/garbage.html.

The Clackamas County Office of Sustainability reminds residents that inclement weather can affect garbage pickup. Typically, routes cover many miles and changing conditions anywhere along a route may make it impossible to safely reach your location. Residents are encouraged to contact their garbage company to determine whether their service has been postponed due to unsafe road conditions.

When service resumes, garbage collection will be the first priority, so it should be left out in the usual location. If collection must be postponed to the next week, residents should put the additional garbage in plastic bags.
