Where to take the branches

Tony Ling launches yard debris overhead at a drop-off site south of Keizer Little League Park on Ridge Drive Northeast.

Yard debris from the ice storm may be dropped off at Keizer Little League Park, south parking lot. The lot opened Monday and will continue operation Tuesday, Feb. 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Enter from the north to help with traffic flow. My little hand-marked map is here to help show where this is and the preferred direction of traffic.

Watch the city Facebook page and website for additional hours over the coming days.

The city will be assessing conditions of street trees and getting them taken care of as well once life/safety priorities are secured. The Public Works crews are working round the clock to clear streets from downed trees and protect locations with downed power lines. Street tree work is a safety priority and will take time to complete due to the sheer volume.

If you see something that is a hazard, help by marking or coning it off and help keep cones and barriers in place until city or power company staff completes work.
